He will show how to prepare a watercolor painting using small tonal sketches.

Each day will start with the detailed demonstration and lesson.

Special attention will be given to the choice of colors and impressionistic style watercolor techniques.

Watercolor by Vladislav Yeliseyev

While painting, workshop participants will:
  • Discover simple steps to fresh and loose watercolor painting.

  • Receive individual instructions at the easel while creating your own painting.

In order to benefit from this workshop, basic knowledge & some previous experience is strongly recommended.
A detailed list of supplies will be available.

“In my paintings, I would like to express the beauty of landscapes through different light conditions and different approaches to interpretation of color in real life. I would like not to merely pick up the colors from the natural environment but to reinvent them right on my canvas. By using this approach I’m trying to achieve liquid quality of natural light in a landscape or natural setting. In particular, I’m interested in architectural elements and their integration through light conditions.”

The workshop will be limited to 20 participants.
