Painting with Watercolor on Canvas, 3-day workshop, June 13-15, 2023
Three-day watercolor on canvas workshop at the Commonwealth Gallery in Madison, WI. This is a workshop designed for artists with some experience painting with watercolor on paper, as well as painters more familiar with oils or acrylics and other painting media, who are interested in learning how to work with watercolor on canvas. Participants will try a range of approaches for effectively using watercolor on Aquabord, watercolor canvas, and other nonporous surfaces, and ways to seal the works for display without needing mats or glass to display. Expressive experimentation will be explored in this relatively new approach to watercolor on nonabsorbent substrates (which will be provided). Bring your watercolor paints, brushes and other favorite painting tools. Helen will provide the canvas and other substrates. Bring your lunches, snacks and drinks.
