Watercolor with an Eye for Design

Ratindra Example Painting

In this multiday workshop, world famous watercolorist Ratindra Das will spend four days sharing his deliberate, analytical, and intuitive approach to landscape painting. This exclusive class will focus on utilizing design in watercolor, with the goal of stimulating each student's creativity through the "thinking process".

Through daily demonstrations and lectures, Ratindra will share his signature techniques such as exploring shapes and their relationships and placement on the paper, using drawings and photographs in a creative way, as well as extracting and utilizing essential shapes from reference materials.

Broad artistic concepts such as light and dark values, the difference between "nature's light" and "artist's light", conceptual and ambiguous lights, value relationship with colors, color in design, how a color dominance (warm or cool) can achieve unity in a painting, and tertiary colors and their effects in painting will also be explored.
