A Series of Good ideas ...That Work!

Geoff McCormack Workshop

Monday - Wednesday, Oct 23, 24 & 25, 2017 (10am to 3pm)

Demo/Lecture: Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017 (10am - Noon)

               

 

 

Be prepared for a different approach to water media in Geoffrey McCormack's latest 3-Day workshop at the NWS.  Geoff is an emerging master of aqua-media, best known for his Rock series and Cardboard Box series: images with startling realistic textures, colors, perspective, lighting and shadows.  His compositions form an intriguing interplay of shapes and contrasting values, often with objects appearing to float on multiple planes.  2016 saw Geoff shift his focus to an abstract series using all the features of his preceding series.  He will share studio practices and techniques he developed or learned over fifty years as a professional artist.  He will demonstrate an array of new materials, tools and techniques, revealing just how and why he creates such distinctive paintings.  Geoff will focus on designing paintings with an engaging point of view, using rich color triads, unique textural effects, and dramatic lighting.  You will combine these techniques and tools with your favorite aqua-media in a series of exercises and paintings.  You will get several demos daily, personal instruction and critiques, plus plenty of painting time.  Advanced beginners to master will benefit from applying these new techniques and materials, suitable for abstract and representational painters.  Special masking materials and films will be supplies by the instructor.

With an exciting vision and a new appreciation for an old art form, the California Water Color Society was founded in 1920. As the country grew, painters found inspiration in the expansive western lands and were, in their way, pioneers of a new spirit.

The name of the society has changed twice since that time: first in 1967, to California National Watercolor Society; then in 1975, when the members voted to become simply the National Watercolor Society.
