Janet Rogers AWS

Expressive Watercolor Portraits


Friday, Saturday & Sunday
 September  16, 17 & 18, 2022
9:00 am - 4:00 pm




This dynamic workshop is designed to enable participants of all levels to quickly gain confidence in approaching the head and figure in a more spontaneous, intuitive and expressive way.

Demonstrations, class instruction, individual assistance, “show and tell”, and a series of “fun” exercises, will weave into class painting time. Special emphasis will be on achieving a fresh look of translucent flesh tones in the portrait with unique color changes, which will add to the excitement of capturing the essence of the subject.

Students will have an opportunity to work from their photographs or Janet’s. Our goals will be to “see” in new ways - bringing “life” and interpretation to the portrait and figure, and to discover intuitive color and design.  Janet will provide some drawing “helps” for anyone who is new to painting people.
