COMMUNICATING WITH WATERCOLOR
Watercolor artists have a special gift. We have the unique ability to speak through our work in wonderful, yet personal ways. In this workshop, using rice paper, and a process called Tea Staining, we’ll create wonderful soft patterns that you can interpret into your artist’s vision. We’ll also have exercises on form, shape and texture with watercolor and collage that will enhance the mood and message of your paintings. Most importantly though, we’ll focus on ways to put more of yourself in your work, to tell your stories and to create individual interpretations of ideas and subjects using this visual language. If you want to jump-start the creative process and discover ways to produce unique paintings using your artist’s eye, come and we’ll do some exploring together.
Cindy Evans is an artist from Williamston, Michigan, who specializes in watercolor and mixed media paintings. Her work is exhibited in many local and regional galleries and shows and can be found in private and public collections. “My motivation to paint is that love of how water and color moves on the paper, the challenge to bring what happens to a successful conclusion, and to bring attention to the beauty in nature, scripture, and the art of storytelling.”
