Happening concurrently with the 50th Anniversary of the California Watercolor Association’s National Exhibition, Michael Reardon will share information from his latest book, Watercolor Techniques, during this three day workshop. He will share some of his insights into painting and how to enjoy it. Through demonstrations and hands-on painting, Michael will show ways to simplify and create dynamic compositions, work quickly and decisively, and capture the essence of a scene convincingly. He will cover the use of a limited palette, dynamic color mixing, and the use of light and value to describe form.
