“Last Day VII” Watercolor and pencil on paper 12″x9″
Making line is our first experience of art as children. It is as old as cave art, and as contemporary as graffiti. For painters, it is often overlooked in favor of texture, value, shape, form or color.
Join Ruth for this 3-day online workshop exploring personal mark-making inspired by the landscape. You’ll experiment with different mark making tools and a symbolic, abstracted approach.
Using script, repetition, direction and layering to interpret or symbolize a specific, special place, will convey feelings more potently than realistic rendering. This class is suitable for both watercolor and acrylic painters.
"When you start working, everybody is in your studio- the past, your friends, enemies, the art world, and above all, your own ideas- all are there. But as you continue painting, they start leaving, one by one, and you are left completely alone. Then, if you are lucky, even you leave."
I’d love to hear from you, whether you’re interested in scheduling a workshop, purchasing a painting or just want to fill me in on your thoughts! You can phone me at 503-998-5833 to schedule a visit to my home studio, or drop me a line here:
