Rose Edin

Making the Most of Color in Transparent Watercolor

August 22-27, 2021 (Four Teaching Days)

In this workshop you will learn to use color to achieve a lively, glowing effect in your paintings. By keeping palette mixing to a minimum and applying other simple but effective tricks, you will create sparking passages of color that attracts the viewer’s eye, encourages imagination and makes your paintings sing. Rose focuses on design, value and color in her paintings. Her subjects come from all over the world. Some are painted on location and others are studio paintings. Color has become her mantra, as she continues to use pure color and lets the color run together to create layers of pure color directly on the paper. Her intent is to draw the viewer into the painting with the light as well as with dramatic color.

A typical day consists of several demonstrations with adequate time for students to practice and paint on their own. Each student is given individual assistance as needed or requested. The day culminates with a critique where individual paintings are shown and positive criticism is given.

2021 COVID Precautions 

It is impossible to assess the impact, if any, of COVID-19 for the upcoming 2021 season, but all artists should be prepared to abide by the following measures while attending workshops.

  1. Participants must fill out a quick health questionnaire to make sure they do not exhibit any symptoms.
  2. Masks are required to be worn while in classrooms and shared spaces.
  3. Participants must also wash hands or use hand sanitizer at the beginning of each class and often during class sessions.
  4. Participants are required to stay 6 feet apart for social distancing protocols.

A floor plan per each of our three studios has been created to ensure that the artist tables and lecture area will allow people to socially distance themselves a minimum of 6 feet. 
In lieu of crowding around the artist during demos, a desktop camera system and large format digital TV screens have been installed in each of the studios to allow students a close up view of demos.
We will be providing students with hand-sanitizer at their work stations. In addition, the studios will be closed for 1 hour in the late evenings for a daily UV sanitation and touch surface cleaning.
