Artist News Item: Stephen Rothwell's Painting Workshops

Stephen Rothwell will be offering an Intermediate/Advanced Watercolour Workshop this fall November 20 and 21, 2009. Details follow below. Pictured above is painting by Stephen Rothwell, "Maritime Morning" featured in Summer Sizzle, Tay River Gallery's summer art show.

Date: November 20 , 21, 2009
Location: KANATA
Cost: $150 for the two days. Lunch will be provided.
Time: 9:00 to 4:00
Participants: A maximum of 10
 This workshop will be offered at Stephen’s studio in Kanata.
It is intended for intermediate to advanced artists wishing to incorporate a loose, wet on wet style. The emphasis will be on bold use of colour while capturing light, contrast and shadow. Techniques of negative painting and glazing will be featured. The focus will be on water scenes from cottage country as well as architectural structures in a natural setting. Participants are encouraged to bring their own reference materials and photos. The best paintings seem to evolve from scenes photographed by the artists themselves. A portion of each session will be devoted to critiquing. Participants are encouraged to bring a finished painting or a work in progress as this proves to be a valuable learning exercise for the whole group.
A list of suggested equipment will be provided upon registration. To register: email: smrothwell@yahoo.ca

Another news item of note: Stephen Rothwell will be the artist in residence on the Celebrity Millenium Cruise to Alaska and California from September 18th to October 10th 2009. Sign up for this exciting cruise and enjoy watercolour instruction at the same time!
