    Dyan Newton
    SC Fall Watercolor Workshop

    September 24-26, 2017

    Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, 9 am – 4 pm

    Dyan’s workshops are for beginners, intermediate and advanced painters.  She will be sharing her style and technique of painting.  She will teach, in a relaxed atmosphere, how to create energy in your paintings, preserve the whites of your paper, obtain strong values, and how to use expressive, fresh, clean brushstrokes while not being overworked.  

    Dyan will go over how to mix transparent watercolors to create vibrancy, how to get in and get out, and keeping the paintings looking spontaneous and fresh.  She will start a painting and then let the students “catch up” with plenty of individual instruction.  She feels this helps the student not have that “lost” feeling after watching an instructor complete a 2-hour demo and then say “ok, now it’s your turn.”  If students prefer, they can bring their own photos to work from.
