Sue Archer In Person workshop details

We are offering an in person, 3-day, watercolor COMMANDING COLORa COLOR THEORY WORKSHOP with award winning artist SUE ARCHER, NWS, AWS, TWSA, FWS

A course designed to inspire your creativity by learning to “see” and experience some of the different aspects of color theory and painting light on objects. Color is one of the elements of design!

“My goal as an instructor is to present you with information about COLOR THEORY to add to your core of knowledge regardless of your medium. I believe in the power of planning and understanding the basics. The objective here is not to change you, but to take you to another level. Then it is up to you to take this  knowledge and apply it to the medium, genre, style and subject matter that suits you.”

In this workshop watercolor-painters will be exposed to the importance of pigment quality, the importance of considering the white paper as a “color”, and how to achieve darks. All medium-painters will be exposed to   all other aspects of color theory for painters.

Topics to be discussed: Color Theory – Achieving colorful darks – Pigment quality – Psychology of color –Importance of value and shape – Unity – Saving white paper – Intent – Showing strong light on objects.

Her award-winning paintings are exhibited in national, regional, and state competitions and hang in numerous corporate and private collections throughout the United States, Europe, Australia and South America. She has won over 200 state and national awards in outdoor shows and indoor competitive exhibitions.

CFWS members can reserve a spot for their table and handcrafted arts for only $10. You keep all the profits! We also need teacher volunteers to set up free watercolor lessons to our community.

Marcela announced some upcoming plein air events:

September 21 – Kraft Azalea Gardens in Winter Park

October 19 – Altamonte Chapel campus

November 16 – Mead Botanical Gardens in Winter Park

We took a break to grab some munchies and then settled down to a wonderful series of members paintings and the stories behind the artwork. So many different styles, from journaling, to plein air to framed paintings were presented. Everyone who brought art had a chance to stand up and talk about the experience. It was a ton of fun!

Orlando Science Center Pop Up/Plein Air Event a Success!

The Orlando Science Center on January 26 was a resounding success for Central Florida Watercolor Society. CFWS artists were able to interact with many different age levels—from eight to eighty. The facilities were especially nice and the OSC staff was well prepared for us. I think we would all agree that comments from the staff, observers and, particularly the participants, were very positive. Since all three of our sessions were full—and we’ve been invited back—OSC is obviously a great venue for future public interaction.
