Workshops

Workshop with Jeannie Vodden: September 13 and 14, 2014

Jeannie Vodden will conduct a workshop which includes watercolor demonstrations, plenty of painting time, individual coaching and gentle critiques.  Participants will use Jeannie’s template and photos or bring own references (still life, floral or portrait) to paint on 11”x14” watercolor paper.  At the end of the workshop, they will gain skill in watercolor techniques, the use of a limited palette, ways to see and paint light and color, and techniques to heighten color.

Known for her patient teaching methods, Jeannie Vodden will demonstrate her rhythmic wet-on-dry approach to watercolor using a limited palette of transparent staining colors. She lives and paints in the foothills of the Northern Sierra Nevada Mountains.  A versatile painter of portraits, still life, floral, landscape and fantasy, Jeannie most often paints with watercolor.  She is on the faculty of the California Water Color Association’s Watercolor Workshops 2014. 

For more information about Jeannie, visit www.Jeannievodden.com.
