Watercolor Painting

Gordon Meggison

Thursdays

January 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th

February 5th, 12th

10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Cost: $195 (not including materials)

We will cover accurate color mixing, glazing while in the process of painting a theme.  I find that most students have trouble mastering loose vibrant color washes in controlled areas that retain a watercolor's natural brilliance.  I believe this is a key factor in doing a strong convincing watercolor. I will also have excersizes designed to promote looseness, but in controlled manner.  I will also introduce a variety of techniques to achieve the illusion of textural effects.  We will cover some aspects of composition, brush techniques, and material characteristics. We will solve varieties of pictoral problems based on photos I provide.

Gordon Meggison lives in Jacksonville and was educated at Jacksonville University.  In 1992, his French Light/ Florida Light art show was hosted by the Sister Cities Association of Jacksonville and Nantes, France, featuring "pleine aire" watercolors.  He now paints full time and teachs watercolor, oils and, acylics.

Starting we will break down a photo of a landscape and build it back up following Gordon's painting methodology.  This class is designed to launch you into an understanding of the incredible choices you have using this amazing modern paint medium. We'll cover color theory, basic form construction, grayscales in process, but quickly move to composition and concentrate on skills that will improve and bring life to your acrylic painting. Composition and underglazing will be established as an important first step. A variety of mediums will be introduced as we go, that can aid the flow of the paints to achieve brilliant results.  We will cover how to get colors to look brighter, using many glazing and textural overlay effects.
