Pleine Air Watercolor

WoodenBoat School in Brooklin, Maine


LINK:  2016 CLASS SAMPLER


LINK: A SAMPLER OF CLASS LOCATIONS AND AMY’S WATERCOLOR CLASS DEMONSTRATIONS


DESCRIPTION — A 5-DAY WORKSHOP:

Create simple, yet dramatic and watercolors that capture the essence of Maine’s rocky coast and details of life along the shore. Each day we travel to a new location: a boat yard, a quaint town and lobster wharf, pine covered islands, and beaches with granite ledges, shells and seaweed. Amy’s focus is on keeping the level of detail simple, the composition interesting, and the watercolor washes fresh and lively. Multiple step-by-step demos each day range from basic drawing and brush techniques, to shading for volume, color mixing, composition, and perspective…even tips on how to fix mistakes. Each student also receives individual attention and demos as they develop their work. Novice students focus on the basics, while experienced students are given challenges and advanced demos to experiment with techniques. All levels of experience are welcome.

Gallery of Images from Mother Daughter Show


Although they chose different paths, both mother and daughter have been professional artists their entire careers. Desert & Coast: Where Mother & Daughter Draw the Line celebrates Flo and Amy’s life-long tradition of coming together to make art, either by sitting side-by-side to capture the same scene or by painting a similar subject while worlds apart. This exhibit of paired paintings and words is as much about how their art reflects the universal mother/daughter dynamic in life, as it is about the art itself.
