      "Welcome to my Workshop!"

    Ryan Fox, AWS

    "It's all about innovative techniques . . .

    "Wet-onto-wet painting, charging color, intentional water blossoms, scraping, spattering, and adding texture. The second two days I'll teach a technique called watercolor batik, using watercolor and wax on Japanese rice paper.

     "We'll talk a lot about color.  There are so many choices with color.  You can make a great painting with 20 different colors.  Or two.

    "We'll also talk a lot about simplification.   How can you make a cityscape look like a city with geometric shapes?  How do you simplify people? 

    "My techniques and lessons apply to any subject matter and all levels of students."
