GOLDEN Watermedia Demo with Andrea Warren

This free lecture explores all of GOLDEN’s paint lines that are fluid in motion: High Flow acrylics, Fluid acrylics, and QoR Watercolor. Learn unique ways of using the Fluid acrylics, and the ink-like High Flows including staining, pouring, calligraphy, pen and ink drawing, and using them in empty paint markers and needle-nosed Fineline Applicators. Explore traditional watercolor techniques with QoR, and extend that into more contemporary applications: pouring, staining, “white-out” tricks (for saving that uncooperative watercolor painting), washes, layering, and using watercolors for monoprinting. We will cover QoR and GOLDEN acrylics in unique combinations, working with the resoluability of watercolor and the permanency of acrylic. Learn how to take advantage of QoR and GOLDEN grounds to create a myriad of surface options: paperlike surfaces from a Hot Press, Rough and Cold Press watercolor surface to a range of color, tooth and grit. Receive information on working on unique substrates, such as wood panel, fabrics, and more. Finally, learn options for protecting your watercolor surfaces without putting them behind glass, using GOLDEN archival varnishes.

Come with your questions, and leave with a product literature folder and free samples!

March Workshops: THE MAGIC OF PENCIL
offered by  Lissa Rachelle

The Basics of Working in Graphite - $60
Discover the true magic of pencils in this single day, 5 hour workshop, which is designed to introduce you to the tools used by pencil artists who work in a realist style. Besides learning about all the various tools that help create the magic, you will also learn the real secret behind achieving those beautifully smooth blended tones that so many artists struggle to perfect. This workshop is the prerequisite for the other two.

Creating Realistic Textures in Graphite I - $60
Prerequisite: The Basics of Working in Graphite
Discover how to give your drawings beautiful depth with realistic textures! This single day, 5 hour workshop picks up where The Basics of Working in Graphite left off by helping you to practice your new skills and become intimately familiar with your pencil grades and what they can do. Watch the magic of pencil come to life as you learn to realistically portray the appearance and texture of grass, foliage, tree bark, wood grain and bricks in your drawings.

Creating Realistic Textures in Graphite II - $60
Prerequisite: The Basics of Working in Graphite
This workshop is exactly the same as the one above, except we will focus on learning to realistically portray the appearance and texture of skin, eyes, hair, fur and feathers in your drawings.

Please Note: NO previous drawing experience is necessary and each workshop is limited to six participants.

Location: The Artists’ Workshop Gallery, 119 Beechwood Avenue, Ottawa (free parking available on site).
