Greetings from Anne-Laure Jacquart

This is an invitation to loosen up and express your painterly self in a brand new way!!  What would you think about improving your watercolor technique while having more and more fun with it?!!

The trip will be for you an opportunity to grow as an artist while creating a wonderful watercolor travel journal full of evocative spontaneous sketches and colorful paintings, a perfect record for this unforgettable South Europe adventure!

During the workshop sessions, I will share with you my tips and techniques to catch a subject or scene in a quick impromptu way, demonstrating them as I go through warm up exploratory studies, watercolour sketches and more refind demos. We will work on capturing their essence through light, colors, edges and pigment playing. Here are a few techniques you will work on during the workshop: spontaneous brushwork, negative painting, alternating painting on dry paper and wet on wet, simplifying values, washes and pigment consistency, calligraphic marks and strokes, splatters, silhouettes shapes, color harmony and more! :) You will learn to apply all of these techniques to the diversity of subjects that make a great travel journal: landscapes, architecture and street scenes but also food, plants, people, objects and details of all kind.

I will be really excited to have you in the group and to spend these unforgettable moments travelling and painting with you! Art, cheerfulness, friendship and experiencing the world. What else?!! :) Looking forward to meeting you, creative bag across the shoulder, brush in hand and inspiration to the full!"
