"Color is the key to enter
the enchanted of the rainbow, realm of imagination"
in acrylic, watercolors and pastel
Finding oneself involved in the plays of trasparency,
bursts of color, effects of light: this is the magic of watercolor
painting. You will let yourself go to the stimuli that surrounding
landscape offers, knowingly leaving behind theories, systems,
and laws to give space to spontaneity.
"Interruption of thought always wants
to outwit artist"
"Let color go free to act with the
paper, with the same consistency with which nature creates her
results, with which minerals and
crystals form, moss and algaee grow, flowers develop and bloom
under the ray of the sun"
Emil Nolde (1867 - 1956)
Participants will have a way to create various
works through an experience made possible by natural allies
such as the environment, light and colors. The pourose of the
course is to give an introduction of painting techniques and
rules that govern their use.
There are various techniques, and from these you maychoose closest
to your temperament. The role of the teacher shall be to propose
examples and analyze them along with enriching the information
and giving suggestions and practical pointers. Our duty shall
be that of creating the conditions for well beeing to reunite
with that playful part of self that exists in each one of us.
