All levels of painters with life drawing experience



Mario A. Robinson

May 3rd - May 5th, 2019


This workshop will focus on painting the figure in watercolor. The live model will maintain the same pose for the duration of the workshop. Students will execute a detailed drawing of the model and learn how to employ a monochromatic block-in to properly identify the values of the subject. The class will culminate with a full color application of color, using thin glaze layers of watercolor. The objective of the workshop is to demonstrate how a methodical approach increases the depth and sense of realism in watercolor paintings.


The instructor will give a demonstration each day and provide personal instruction throughout the day.
