A New Victorian Watercolor Techniques Workshop

One of my great loves is watercolor--the liquid flow of the color from the brush, its transformation as the grains fill the tiny hollows in the paper, its extreme versatility, and its ease of transport and clean-up.

And I love to share my experience with it in workshops! 
Coming this May; a two-day watercolor workshop: Victorian Watercolor Techniques for Artists and Illustrators, at Foothills Art Center in Golden, Colorado--a beautiful art center and gallery located just a few minutes West of Downtown Denver.

There's a huge variety of watercolor techniques used by the artists and illustrators of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. I've studied and experimented with their techniques for years.

This is a detail by Arthur Rackham. 
I'll cover his watercolor techniques, and those of some of his contemporaries in the workshop!

Two other favorites: Helen Allingham (top) and William Henry Hunt (below).
Both of their techniques will be explored in the workshop, as well as the techniques of Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
If you are after upping your game in watercolor, studying these masters will get you there!

I will also cover my techniques for safely presenting watercolors without the expense of mats and frames. There'll be a ton of useful info!
 I'm very happy that my watercolor illustration was picked to be in next year's Infected by Art 4, and excited to be able to share my watercolor knowledge in this upcoming workshop at Foothills.
I hope you'll join us--click on the link below for more info:
