Understanding the 4 Pillars
This Alvaro Castagnet Watercolour Masterclass is an intense 2 days of inspiration, hard work and productive learning.
Capture the magic of watercolours in this 2 days painting workshop with Alvaro Castagnet. This is an opportunity to have fun learning from an energetic and colourful master of expressive watercolour.
Alvaro begins with a philosophical introduction and then follows with a simple “one go” demonstration
The demo will focus on bold composition with an understanding of the 4 Pillars.
You will learn how to make quick decisions and simplify your subject to achieve the most impact. We will discuss Color relationships, tonal range, forms & shapes and edges.
Participants will then paint until we break for lunch
Alvaro will assist and give advice on works in progress.
Participants are asked to start a second painting for the afternoon session, after Alvaro’s 2nd. Demonstration. Alvaro will supervise participants until the end of the day.
On the second day, Alvaro will demonstrate twice and there will be a final advice session, where every participant will show a favourite painting they have produced. Participants will go home not only feeling great with their achievement but also realizing how much they have learned after having so much fun. They will leave with a clear understanding of the strength and weakness of their paintings.
