This is a workshop for those who wish to loosen up in watercolor. Painting techniques and a philosophy of design will encourage bold, loose paintings. Eric believes most painting problems are the violation of an elementary painting principle. Lectures will be easily understood and helpful. It is recommended that the student have minimal previous experience. There will be ample time for students to try the concepts presented in a safe environment. Eric will do a completed painting demonstration daily. Subject matter may include land, marine, and streetscapes, florals and interiors.
