Almost every artist who paints watercolor wants to get looser and take advantage of the medium. Watercolor really does paint itself and this exercise will help you get over having to put in every detail. By suggesting detail you give the viewer a chance to see much more then being to realistic. An illusion of your vision is far more compelling and timeless.
This workshop is a two part process and by setting up the first part you can go wild and crazy painting the second. Taking advantage of a lo-tek masking technique you'll be able to achieve your goals and become a more expressive artist.
Joe Cibere is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society. Teaching and painting watercolor for over thirty years, his painting style is fresh, exciting and dramatic and is a direct result of the medium. His art demonstrates his love of nature and wilderness. His "abstract realism" paintings integrate strong design and balance with a sense of illusion and have appeared in "Watercolor Magazine" and in the International Artists book "The Watercolor Sky and Cloud Techniques of 23 International Artists".
