Catherine Darling Hostetter
Learn how to use your imagination to personalize and add the unexpected to your watercolor style. Catherine focuses on animals and people in her artwork and often combines them with a whimsical twist. You will learn how let go and use your imagination with fun exercises. Follow your inspiration; where even the most traditional artist can incorporate creative ideas into their style!
About the workshop:
The first day Catherine will demonstrate two exercises that pull on your artistic imagination. In the morning exercise #1 will open your eyes and get you wiggling. Then the students will be set loose to indulge their own creative thoughts on WC paper. After lunch it’s time for demo #2 where you let your fancy take flight and you paint a story of your personal design.
Day two, we begin with a demo involving Catherine’s favorite subjects, animals and people. Artists are invited to bring photos of their favorite subject matter and focus on adding their original inspiration to a painting of their own. Be brave! This is the time to follow your inspiration!
We will end each day with a critique. Are we going to have fun? Heck yeah!
