Innovative Watercolor Collage Workshop
Submitted By Sachie Johns
The Fremont Art Association is pleased to present a fine workshop with guest artist, Lynn Slade in early March. The artist will cover the following topics: Valuable Values - interesting value shapes in a painting are more important to the success of the painting than the color itself. Seeing these abstract values in your subject matter is one of the first and most difficult things for an artist to understand. Learn about the power of these valuable values, how to find them in our subject matter and connect them with transitional passages.
In addition, learn the concept of 80/20 in a composition, how to find and make a focal point stand out and direct the viewer's eye to it. Understanding these design concepts can help take your paintings to the next level. The workshop will also explore collage techniques using a variety of rice papers and help you create a dramatic finished work by combining color and texture.
The popular and innovative Slade has received numerous awards and her works have been published in books and art magazines. Her work can be viewed at Gallery 10 in Sutter Creek, CA.
