Drawing and Watercolor Painting
Adult Gallery

John Duke is an award winning watercolor artist and will take the student through the process of drawing, concentrating on composition, with a focus on perspective,  He will then
begin with a discussion on color theory and values to show students how to create works that are 3 dimensional.  He will also discuss what watercolors and brushes he prefers.

"Thru the years of creating in different mediums, I now work primarily in Watercolors. I like to start with light pale colors, building up layers to achieve more depth and a brightness
that is realistic, yet in a painterly fashion.  I love that the translucent colors seem to have a spirit of their own, bringing the artwork to life.  My hopes are that others will want and
enjoy the peaceful harmony of these paintings as much as I enjoy creating them."  ~John Duke
