Ratindra Das

Watercolor Workshop


Friday, Saturday & Sunday,

March 13, 14 & 15, 2015

9:00 – 4:00pm


You shall be encouraged to respond to the image as much with instinct and intuition as with intellect and experience. The goal of this workshop will be to capture and express in watercolors our feelings, impressions and emotions relating to our surroundings. Day one, we will produce a recognizable image. Using wet into wet techniques, movement and mixing of colors on the paper will be the priority. In the succeeding days we will progress towards releasing you from your need to see something recognizable in your work. Inspired by the garden environment, the focus shall increasingly become color and composition for their own sake. We will work towards expressing the spirit of our surroundings without creating literal images.
Success is not guaranteed but the effort will affect your future approach to painting. Beauty is a perception. It does not need to be an image of something. Good art is more than just recording the image in front of you.
