CREATIVE REALISM IN WATERCOLOR DVD
Are you tired of those realistically painted scenes?
On this DVD, you will see a line drawing of a southern dwelling and live oak converted into a sketch of light and dark patterns. I start on deciding the light direction and next, with a mid-value gray, paint the shadows and dark shapes to make the scene and shapes “readable”.
In the next phase, I show how to create abstract, non-objective “underpaintings” on top of which – believe it or not – almost ANYTHING can be superimposed. You can have a lot of fun with that.
To prove that point, the first scene is painted in full color on a sheet of clear acetate and placed over several underpaintings, with amazing results. However, I must make clear that I do not usually paint on acetate – except in this case – to show how an actual subject can be placed on a non-objective underpainting. Therefore, to demonstrate this approach, I use one of the just completed underpaintings to create the same subject on it, this time in full color. But wait, there is more!
Next, I like to make you aware of the importance of negative shapes, by using another underpainting to coax an autumn forest scene into existence. When we do this during my workshop, I suggest some practice on drawing paper before tackling it on an underpainting.
Last, a gallery of my creative examples completes this DVD. Now it is your turn. Have fun exploring this technique!
