Watercolour: Colourful Rocks


Wednesday, February 26   5:30PM - 9:00 PM

Instructor: Francis Marte

Here is a fun way to learn to paint different types of textures in watercolour! The instructor will demo techniques including wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry, layering, scraping, adding salt, splattering, and more, all in one class! Guided by a reference photo, learn also how to pay attention to value, tone, and colour harmony.

After this class you will be more confident in painting for other still-life paintings that are colourful, varied, and dramatic.

A photo reference will be provided by the instructor, as well as paints and other supplies.

About the Instructor: In 2015, after a long hiatus from the Art World, Francis attended watercolour classes in Edmonton and rediscovered his love and mastery of the medium, with a newly found inspiration – scenes of Alberta landscapes and architecture. He also specializes in dramatic portraits and still lifes. He has participated in various exhibitions in Edmonton – at Lotus Art Gallery, Harcourt House, Art from the Unknown, and the Art Gallery of Alberta among others. Besides his commission work and constant practice, he also teaches frequent watercolour classes at The Paint Spot. Most of his free time is spent painting at his home studio, hoping never to retire being a watercolourist.
