Watercolor Workshop – Painter Carl Dalio

Watercolor Workshop – Master painter Carl Dalio

Watercolor Dynamics – Think outside the box of your photos

Astoria, Oregon

Learn to create powerhouse watercolors using your own photo references in a watercolor workshop with master painter Carl Dalio. Are you tired of struggling with your photos and being disappointed with your watercolor results? Painting from life is certainly the best teacher for the effects of light and color. But when that’s not possible, many artists turn to their photo references and get trapped into “reporting” what the photo is dictating, detail by detail. Learn how to transform static camera images into inspired, passion-filled paintings that celebrate our human selves in this watercolor workshop. AWS and NWS Signature member Carl Dalio, will show you how to create vibrant paintings that not only get into exhibitions but win awards.

In this watercolor workshop, Carl will guide you through the necessary steps to obtain valuable, quality photo references, to develop story line concepts, to edit and simplify subject matter and to evolve dynamic compositions filled with light-energized color. His watercolor workshop will also cover simple concepts to a pain-free understanding of perspective.

Each day in this four day watercolor workshop Carl will begin with a demonstration painting, followed by brief concept exercises and lots of personal painting time. There will be daily critiques and, whether individual or group, they will be positive and honest and are always intended to support and inspire.
