Creative Floral and Landscape Painting
June 9 & 10, 2017 – Fri. & Sat., 9:30am–4:30pm – Fee: $270
Learn to trust your creative instincts and add new energy and dimension to your floral and landscape paintings. Joan’s approach to painting emphasizes using the natural free-flowing characteristics of watercolor to create vibrant and expressive paintings. Major objectives will be exploring the natural attributes of watercolor, using intuitive spontaneous response to free-flowing pigment and developing good design within this framework. Demonstrations will show ways to take advantage of the happy accidents that occur in this method and how to create an abstract base for your floral and landscape watercolors. Using your own photos or sketches learn to create expressive watercolor paintings that are alive with exciting color, patterns, and textures.
Joan McKasson is a nationally recognized watercolor painter, juror and an enthusiastic, inspirational instructor of creative watercolor and watermedia workshops.

McKasson is a signature member of Rocky Mountain National Watermedia Society, San Diego Watercolor Society, Watercolor West, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies and an elected member of the San Diego Artists Guild.
