THREE-DAY WATERCOLOUR WORKSHOP

 

"Painting Water

with

Ron Hazell, CSPWC, SCA

     

DATES:       Three consecutive days: Thurs, June 21 – Sat, June 23, 2018

TIME:          9:30 to 3:30 each day     

PLACE:       St. Margaret of Scotland Church Hall

          3751 Robie St., Halifax  (near corner of Robie & Leeds St., north end   

                                                   Halifax)

             

CONTENT: This workshop will focus on painting water in all its different states, from dead calm to breaking ocean swells against rock cliffs. As with painting most things, it’s all about value, that is controlling the light and dark shapes in the composition. Many watercolour paintings fail due to poor value control. We will look at the two main reasons why controlling value in transparent watercolour is so challenging. We will explore painting water while controlling value through various painting exercises and demonstrations. An overhead mirror will provide an unobstructed view of the demos. All levels of experience are welcome, including beginners.

Workshop fee is $225. Painting materials are not included.  To confirm a place in the workshop, make out a deposit cheque to “Ron Hazell” for $100 and mail with the registration form on page 2 to:

                                                Ron Hazell

                                                1001 – 2677 Gladstone St.

                                                Halifax, NS   B3K 0A3

Registrations will be taken on a first come, first served basis. You are registered when I receive your deposit, which will be acknowledged by e-mail upon receipt. The balance of $125 is due the first day of the workshop.

Tea and coffee will be provided. Bring your own lunch. There is a fridge and microwave available as well as free parking. If you have any questions, including accommodation information if you are travelling to the workshop, contact Ron at ron.hazell@ns.sympatico.ca

About the Instructor

To see samples of Ron’s work, check out the Gallery page of his web site at   www.ronhazell.com. Click on your “Refresh” button if you have Ron’s site on your “Favourites” or  “Bookmarked” list.

 

What to Bring

Bring lots of quarter sheets of 140# or 300# watercolour paper. Bring your normal painting supplies and your largest brushes. You will also need a sketchbook. Recommended size is at least 8” x 10”. Bring a soft pencil, 6B or softer (the higher the “B” numbers, the softer the lead). Since pencil sketching is a close first cousin of transparent watercolour, we will be doing several pencil sketching exercises.

Concerning reference material, since we are not painting en situ, you may want to bring sketches or photos (preferable sketches) that you have taken or done yourself. You are always welcome to use my demos for reference material.

Don’t forget a lunch, or you may want to lunch at Cousin’s Restaurant which is nearby at 3545 Robie St. (corner of Robie and Duffus Sts).

Cancellation Policy

The $100 registration deposit will be refunded in full if I am notified of a cancellation within 30 days of the first day of the workshop, or if you find someone to replace you at any time before the workshop.
