“Loose and Lively on the Urban Corner” with David Peterson



A beautiful day out in Oak Park for David Peterson’s Watercolor Workshop this morning titled “Loose and Lively on the Urban Corner.”  In this workshop, David showed the group how he takes an ordinary street  scene and turns it into a lively and fun painting experience.

Below are some of the paintings from the workshop participants.  Everyone enjoyed the day here in the heart of Oak Park painting the urban corners around the studio.  David Peterson is an amazing artist and a wonderful instructor.  Thank you David for this wonderful watercolor workshop at the studio!

"PILE IT ON!" - and finish with finesse...

Full Day Workshops at Patris Studio...
Freedomauction_0252c11f-05cd-477b-8102-8584b8f7a75a! That's what this workshop is about. Be bold!

If you've ever wanted to learn how to use more paint this class is for you. We will wash in the underpainting quickly and then grab our palette knife.  We will pile on the paint  before learning to soften the edges with the brush and finish with any necessary detail. This technique is designed to teach you how to trust what you see with your eyes while squinting to see the large value shapes, in addition to learning to manipulate more paint on the canvas. 2013-08-03 12.16.34
