The magnificent Mayo landscape is the focus of this water media-based workshop. We will paint locally outdoors and make watercolor monotypes indoors.
Watercolor is the art of visualizing colored light and manipulating water and gravity; it is a balancing act between spontaneity and control. We will cover the fundamental aspects of working with watercolor through demonstrations and exercises. Individual attention and group discussions will enhance the participant’s personal response to the medium.
Watercolor monotype combines the translucence and flowing marks of watercolor with the surprises and freshness of printmaking. Explore as you print with watercolor on plexiglass for an exciting combination of luminosity and complex color layering. Watercolor monotypes are just like other monotypes in as much as they produce single, unique images. However, the image is made with watercolors painted on plexiglass. The artist can manipulate wet pigment washes, wipe them away, use stencils etc. during the drawing process. We will make "one-pass" through the press prints, ghost prints and multi-layered images.
