    NMWS Spring 2019 Workshop with 

    John Salminen, NWS, AWS.DF


    "Realism Through Design"

    In this workshop, John will share his approach to painting the urban scene in watercolor.  John will help participants in all aspects of painting a representational cityscape or town scene – choosing the subject, adding mood and creating emotional content, lighting the scene for dramatic effect, using photo reference in a meaningful way and most importantly, strengthening and enhancing representational painting through design. The workshop will include demonstrations, critiques and lots of one-on-one individual help.  Whether you’ve never tried painting townscapes and cityscapes or are an experienced urban painter, this workshop will be an invaluable opportunity to gain new painting insights.
