Antonio Masi is president of the American Watercolor Society and International renowned painter. The goal of this workshop is to show the untapped power of watercolor. The focus will be on how to approach this medium from a contemporary point of view, powerful, emotional and delicate. Learn how attention to details and unusual perspective make for poetic, moody works, with strong textural qualities. He will demonstrate land, marine and cityscapes and explain the fundamentals that make a painting successful. The lectures are easily understood and helpful. Students are free to select the subject they like to paint. During his demonstrations, he will explain the uses of his paints, paper, palette and brushes and how he applies color and how to loosen up during painting. He will demo in the morning and the remainder of the day students will receive plenty of one-on-one individual demonstrations. Students are welcome to bring a completed painting on the first day for a skill building critique.
