Artist, Marilyn Walter

 

 

Marilyn Walter has been painting and drawing for 40 years, exhibiting regularly, and an active member of the Florida Arts Community. Her figurative and landscape works have been in numerous shows in Florida, Texas, New Jersey, and New York. Marilyn grew up in Kuwait and Iran.  Her travel experiences and international upbringing continues to influence her work.  

 

 

 

 

She is most at home using multiple art mediums in many forms to create her unique portraits and landscapes.  Each piece is a visual snapshot of images she investigates, capturing and combining a personal relationship with various places, nature, personality, and energy.

 

Marilyn studied at Fairleigh Dickinson University, NJ, continuing her art education pursuits by attending Bank Street/Parsons, NYC and several Summer Residency Programs at the School of Visual Arts, NYC.  In West Palm Beach, FL she has facilitated a series collaborative art projects.

 

 

 

 

 

Marilyn tells The Rickie Report, ” The act of people-watching on social media is an integral part of my creative process.  I investigate the stories and contextual information that reveals a human narrative. I am interested in how we portray ourselves in the contemporary world. These collaborative exchanges caught by my iPhone or iPad are then transformed from temporary images into permanent physical portraits.  Utilizing paint, printmaking, and mixed media, my art encompasses a unique variety of unconventional materials”.

Illuminations are small, highly detailed paintings that accompany text or calligraphy. They often have a sacred component and are very powerful despite their small size. In this course you will learn to create illuminated letters and words using modern materials such as watercolor and gouache paint, pen and ink or small magic markers, and colored pencils. The effect of gold leaf will be simulated with gold paint markers.  Elements and principles of lettering will be explained to help students achieve a pleasing result. You can work in a traditional style or something more modern.

What is gouache (pronounced gwash)? It is a form of brilliant, opaque watercolor that is favored by artists for detailed work such as greeting cards and book illustrations, as well as fabric and wallpaper designs. It handles like watercolor and may be thinned, lifted off or painted over, and is also easy to correct. It is highly suitable for quick outdoor sketching or art journaling. If you enjoy watercolor, this class will further expand your painting horizons. Through a series of structured exercises and demonstrations you will learn how to make the most of this versatile medium. Each student will receive encouraging personal attention to develop a powerful, small painting. (Note: Please also see Introduction to Illumination, which is a series of classes including gouache painting to complement this workshop.)
