“THE ENLIGHTENED BRUSH” – FIGURES AND PORTRAITS IN WATERCOLOR
Learn to paint dynamic, colorful, figures and portraits under the guidance of an accomplished expert. Based on an intimate dance of light and color, Ken will show you how to bring your paintings to life while using your own personal vision and experiences. Comprehensive portrait and figure painting will be featured in a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. You will have the opportunity to work with your own personal favorite subject matter as well as reference photos provided by the instructor. One day during the week, you will work with a live model (clothed/draped). There will be daily demos and plenty of one on one instruction for all who desire. At the end of each day you will have the opportunity to share your work with Ken and the class for review and discussion.
Ken has achieved signature status in AWS, NWS, MTWS, MOWS, IWS along with becoming a TWSA Master in 2017. He has won numerous awards including twenty Best in Shows, and his work has been featured in Watercolor Artist and American Artist Watercolor.
“Starting in art school and all thru my early years as an illustrator I was encouraged to paint in many different mediums and styles. I tried them all but, in the end, I settled on watercolor. The spontaneity and flow just fit my personality and style. What I look for and strive to achieve can only be captured in this wonderful medium. The beautiful play of light and shadows, especially on and around the human figure, is what draws me in and gives me my inspiration.”
