Schedule of Las Cruces Meetings
“Chinese Painting and Mounting on Rice Paper”
Using modern materials, Jacques Barriac, a watercolor artist from El Paso, will demonstrate how to mount a very thin Chinese painting on a rigid backing. He will also review various aspects of Chinese watercolor paintings, including traditional and Western Chinese painting techniques, brushes, and the great many papers that can be used.
Many famous artists worked in watercolor and did spectacular work in watercolor, but we are only familiar with their oil paintings! Kathleen Key, noted art historian and teacher at UT El Paso , will show paintings of some of your favorite artists' and their beautiful, inspiring work in the incredible medium of watercolor! We know you will be pleasantly surprised!
Sally Quillen, local artist and gallery owner, will use color theory and different kinds of palettes to create different moods in a painting. NOTE THE DATE CHANGE because of Easter!
