Plan on bringing a $15 fee for materials made out to Kathleen Mooney. This $15.00 materials fee includes items that you would have to buy in bulk or spend a lot of time and effort seeking out. This ensures everyone in the class will have the same standard materials and supplies for this class. For this class that includes a 1 1/2 inch brush, scraping tools, and Deli Wrap. You may also use additional colors from Kathleen’s bin of acrylic paints, watercolors, conte crayons and graphite pencils. The cost of this workshop is $165.
This studio workshop will explore the properties of snow: how the light, and the surroundings, affect the snow, and how the snow affects its surroundings. I’ll demonstrate how snow can be used as a great foil for design in the landscape. We will look at the various watercolor techniques that can be employed to enhance winter landscapes. I will present tips on how to simplify, and, at the same time, strengthen your paintings. http://ericmichaelsfineart.com/
