In this three-day indoor workshop Joel will demonstrate how to achieve a light and weather effect in your watercolor landscape paintings. Topics will vary from painting skies, sunrises, sunsets, trees, buildings, among other subjects. Following the demonstration, you will have the opportunity to paint and apply the concepts presented. Methods for creating effective clouds and skies will be explored, as well as how to mix a natural looking green. You'll also learn how to achieve spatial depth using a prismatic color approach. Individual instruction will be provided throughout the day.
Participants should plan on making at least two sketches a day and perhaps extra for "do-overs." Make sure you have Cadmium Lemon Yellow, Cobalt Blue, French Ultramarine and Ivory Black plus whatever colors you're comfortable working with. Bring landscape reference pictures with good light and shadows.

Light, Mood, Weather and Watercolor!
October 20 - 22, 2020
9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Join Joel in Rehobeth Beach, Delaware for a three-day indoor watercolor workshop hosted by the Delaware Watercolor Society. Joel is noted for his traditional approach to watercolor, in particular, his use of green, which has been passed down to him by a teacher who studied with the highly regarded artist and instructor Frank Vincent DuMond (1865-1951). He has adapted DuMond's principles and palette to his methods in watercolor.
Joel's paintings, often described as "tranquil, full of light and air," are based upon his Plein air sketches. In this workshop he will demonstrate techniques to capture the feeling of light, mood, weather in your watercolor landscapes. Techniques for creating clouds and skies will be demonstrated, as well as how to mix a natural green and handle all sorts of elements within a watercolor landscape.
Bring your painting supplies (which should include: Cobalt Blue, French Ultramarine, Cadmium Yellow and Ivory Black) and any landscape reference pictures. Make sure your reference has good light, shadows and/or an interesting weather effect.
