Soon Y. Warren Watercolor Workshop: Vibrant Watercolors 

March 7-10, 2022

In this 4-day Workshop, students will learn to paint beautiful, detailed images with vibrant watercolors.  Soon uses a step-by-step process to walk students through the painting process.  Students select their preferred references, which includea cut crystal bowl with floral or fruits. This workshop can be attended by students at all levels.  Digital reference photos, drawings, and step-by-step images will be available for students so they can follow at their own pace.  After a painting demonstration of each step, participants work according to their skill level and experience to complete their own paintings. The class will concentrate on technique, the concept of color theory, composition, and color values. 

The workshop will include:

  • Glazing and washing techniques to create a luminous under painting
  • How to utilize light and dark values in order to capture the sparkle of crystal, smooth background wash, or pouring background  
  • How to approach a painting
  • How to incorporate the concept of color theory and color relationships into a painting
  • Discussion and critiques will follow during workshop session 
  • In addition to the group exercise, participants are encouraged to bring current pieces to paint along with reference photos. To make the most of instructional time, prepare the drawing before the workshop.
  • The Purple Iris and Gladiolus are the references for the class.
