Transforming Living Creative forces into Color & Form
Blooming, blossoming, growing, flourishing, wilting..decaying… Point, periphery …creativity and imagination through the art of painting
Our focus will be to develop form and motif ‘out of the color’, an approach inspired by Goethe and Steiner that perceives colors as the visible outer garments of invisible forces and beings.
Mornings, 9am, we begin our color work, practicing the veil technique with watercolor and a given color study that will develop into a painting. Practice motif with various artistic techniques.
Afternoons till 4:30, One afternoon sketching in Colorado’s magnificent nature. On the other days taking inspiration from flowers, we’ll explore Cy Twombly’s plant techniques, develop outdoor sketches and practice various color combinations. Material used in the workshop: watercolor, gouache, ink, colored pencils and charcoal.
