John Keller's demonstration will revolve around a slide presentation of his work and how it relates to his approach to teaching watercolor.

There are two major characteristics associated with watercolor; spontaneity and transparency. I will use examples of student work for the two "assignments" I will give the attendees, as follows:

(1)
Execute at least one half-sheet (15 x 22) non-objective watercolor painting using only wet-on-wet watercolor techniques. The goal here is to utilize the wet-on-wet approach to watercolor to maximize visual spontaneity.

(2)
Execute at least one half-sheet non-objective watercolor painting using only hard-edged approaches. Masking tape, or other masking processes are acceptable, even encouraged.

Supply List

Watercolor paints, preferably tubes

 

Watercolor brushes (Ideally, you will want at least a 1/2" to 1" flat brush.) An assortment of several sizes of brushes would be good.

A minimum of two half-sheets of 140# or 300# watercolor paper. Fast workers may want four to six sheets. 300# is preferrable for the wet-on-wet technique, but not necessary. Mold made rag paper (100% cotton) is preferred, but these assignments can be done on any watercolor paper. There are many advantages to using rag paper, however.

A watercolor palette & water container

Other supplies:

Cotton cloth (old diaper or cotton dish towel),
Masking tape, or
Scotch Magic tape,
Miskit,
White Mask,
or equivalent masking fluid would be useful, but not required,

Masonite or plywood board for paper support.


And, your imagination!
