Talbot’s cool, loose-limbed paintings range from close ups of undergrowth to long views, all presented with a sense of urgency and implied mobility. We feel as if the image will change if we look away. The wind will blow, the water will move. And then we are captured by the fact of paint and stroke again.
Scaling up the Still Life in Watercolor
December 2 – 3, 2023
Saturday and Sunday, 10 – 4:30
The Art Students League of NY
Observing a still life, we will turn our perceptions into personal explorations. Students will paint from the setup, paying particular attention to scale. Formal concepts will be addressed, while maintaining an appreciation for the immediacy of the medium of watercolor. Starting with small tonal studies, students will work up to a 22 x 30 inch painting. Demos will be done in watercolor, but all water media are welcome. This workshop is open to all levels, although some experience in watercolor or drawing will be helpful.
