In this painting workshop you will experience how Mort creates and designs his signature compositions by incorporating the use of gesso and gouache with watercolor and acrylic. The first day of the course will begin with a slide presentation of Mort’s work and each day will include demonstrations.  The main objective is to get excited about your painting.  See that you can have fun and open yourself to new ways to use water base medium and incorporate techniques that can be used to correct mistakes or use mistakes to improve your composition. Learn to see how the designing of your paintings is an ongoing process and “see” and experience the different aspects of color and design. Topics for discussions: the use of gouache as an opaque medium, breaking the transparent watercolor rules, identifying what works and expanding on it, creating wet and loose backgrounds and using your own photographs as reference. Finished paintings are not one of our goals.
