    NMWS Spring 2019 Workshop with 

    John Salminen NWS, AWS.DF


    "Realism Through Design" 

    Workshop Description : 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.
