Anita Lovitt Offers Half-Day Workshop To Help You “Loosen Up Your Watercolors!” At Easel Art Supply In Lake Park, FL

Anita Lovitt is a painter, illustrator and public artist, known for her watercolor classes at many Art Schools and Cultural Institutions in Palm Beach County.  She is offering a half-day workshop, “Loosen Up Your Watercolors!” at Easel Art in Lake Park, FL on Friday, August 2, 2024.  Learn about wet-on-wet techniques, break free of literal interpretations when using photos as reference, learn to focus on the overall picture and less on the details. Anita’s students continue to be thrilled with their new results after a class with her. The Rickie Report shares the details here and urges you to sign up by July 31 to reserve your space!

“Spirit of Sunrise” by Anita Lovitt

 

 

“So many people tell me they want to paint more loosely, yet they get mired down in details,” Anita tells The Rickie Report. “It is easier to paint wet-into-wet when you use thick, juicy paint that is well mixed. It is also helpful to focus on shapes and values rather than details, especially at the beginning.  In the case of this subject I wanted to convey the exhilarating feeling of an early sunrise in the Everglades. The free-flowing color has that emotional component.”

 

 

IF  YOU….

 

  • Love to paint with watercolors but are uncomfortable with wet on wet techniques

  • Often interpret photographic references literally and would like to break free of that

  • Tend to focus more on details than the big overall picture

 

 

THIS    WORKSHOP    IS    FOR    YOU!

 

 

 

If you feel that your paintings are getting too “tight”, using more water AND more pigment may be the answer. Understanding how watercolor pigments want to behave when mixed with water can help you know what to expect. Then you can take more risks and achieve the free-flowing effects for which watercolor is so admired.

 

Topics   you   will   learn:

Designing painterly shapes

Integrating subject and background

Composing your painting—shapes and contrasts

Mixing paint to the right consistency

Spattering, blotting, and salt

 

 

You will warm up with some basic exercises. The instructor will demonstrate in stages how to use these techniques by painting from a photo, Students will paint along, each receiving individual encouragement. The workshop will end with an upbeat, constructive critique so that we can all learn from each other.

 

 

Please call Anita for materials list:   561.706.3653
