Keiko Tanabe artist

Within the course several beautiful excursions to exercise learned in study classes are included.

This workshop is designed for those who would like to gain a better understanding of methods and techniques to make watercolour paintings that are simple yet strong. The goal is to develop an eye for a potentially good subject and capture the essence of it through the simplification process.

You will paint different subjects every day, including landscapes, cityscapes and waterscapes (en plein-air, weather permitting). Each day there will be a small exercise which will then be applied to a painting later in the day. Keiko will do two demonstrations a day. There will plenty of one-on-one guidance and a question-and-answer session on a daily basis. A class critique will be conducted at the end of each day.

The process of simplification begins with visualization. Through various exercises and step-by-step demonstrations, Keiko shows how you can take your initial inspiration through the simplification process to create an expressive painting that is simple in content and strong in composition.
