This is a great workshop for those who love color and/or want to learn how to use it to make your paintings more expressive. 

Stretch your perception of how you see, think about, and interpret color.

Learn to create vibrant and glowing color in your watercolors by using flowing passages of wet into wet paint and combining that with overlapping transparent layers of color. Marjorie will show you her process for interpreting native colors into glowing color.

 Students will work from their own photos of landscapes of their choosing* and will re-imagine it through a study of color juxtapositions, nuances of color, layering, light, and shadow. 

Work at your own pace, on several paintings during the week, or one larger watercolor and its accompanying sketches. 

Your first drawing (from your photo) should be completed prior to the start of the workshop so we can begin painting right away.

Mornings will have a demonstration followed by students working on their own works for the rest of each day.

Lots of  individual guidance (and encouragement) will be given throughout the day. Critiques will happen as needed (most likely twice during the week)and are relaxed and informative - There will be also be some impromtu but brief slide shows of artists’ work to inspire you.

 My teaching style is relaxed, comprehensive, and eclectic with an emphasis on color and how to use it in an expressive way. 

I will assist you in developing further your own voice as an artist.
