Join award-winning watercolorist Hyon Fielding for an en plein air watercolor workshop Thursday, Friday and Saturday, August 6, 7 and 8, 2015 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. In this workshop “Strong and Dynamic Composition” students will learn how to simplify subjects in both nature and complex settings such as busy harbors or urban areas. Each day will incorporate a different plein air location, such as the Charleston Harbor, Downtown Coos Bay, or Old Town Bandon.

The instructor will provide illustrations and short lectures on the elements and principles of design, as well as guidance on how to critique your own artwork throughout the creative process. Techniques for using tools, fundamentals of color mixing, and achieving harmonious composition by defining shapes and providing balance will also be discussed.
