Service Description

Absolutely no drawing experience necessary in my California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture™ workshop. I use a reference photo/ hand tracing-onto-watercolor paper technique that is super simple to execute. The creativity and California Vibe fun begins during the painting process! I’ll teach and inspire you to mix expressive colors and with a big brush, apply them to watercolor paper with a zestful panache! You will learn: • how to take in-your-face (pun intended) dramatic, stylistic reference photos with camera, pad, or phone • how to utilize a simple technique to trace head and facial features from your reference photo and easily transfer it to watercolor paper • how to minimize and pare down your painting strokes to render an expressive portrait • how to work with a minimal palette to create maximum visual impact • how to add stencil embellishments At the conclusion of my California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture Workshop™, you will have the where-with-all to follow your own path towards creating colorful, expressive, out-of-the-paint box portraits! This is an online workshop on Zoom. The class is taught Pacific Time 9 AM - 11:30 AM, 12 Noon - 1:30 PM, with a half-hour lunch break between the morning and afternoon sessions. Minimum 12 students, maximum 20 students. David Lobengerg Internationally published and exhibiting fine artist David Lobenberg has more than 35 years experience teaching both college and private art classes.
