WATERCOLOR: Intense Color & Contrast with James Farrand
Saturday, December 8th, 2012 - FREE demos!
at 11 am & 1:30 pm

James Farrand will discuss and demonstrate—among other things—various aspects of contrast in art and color. In particular, he'll discuss some of the concepts developed by swiss painter and teacher, Johannes Itten, including contrast of hue, contrast of saturation, and contrast of extension/proportion.

Watch as James also demonstrates the basics of how he go about achieving these contrasts in the medium of watercolor. By using techniques such as pouring/squeezing, charging, glazing, and masking, you’ll see how he creates paintings with highly saturated colors and values that often have viewers asking, 'that's a watercolor?'.

With thoughtful attention to these concepts/techniques, and a goodly amount of patience and a friendly blow-dryer, you can too.
