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.
