Watercolor & Pastels : 1 Session
Egret by Emily Weil
About the instructor: Emily Weil is a painter who works in watercolor and acrylic and needs to paint as much as she needs to breathe. Her work has been shown at Slate Gallery in Oakland and Jco’s Place Gallery in Los Gatos, and she has exhibited at East Bay Open Studios since 2008, when her painting was featured on the directory cover. She obtained a BFA in graphic design from the California College of Arts and Crafts and operates a freelance design business, Red Eye Design, from her home in Alameda where she lives on a floating home. Emily loves to roam around and paint outside at Alameda point, Mare Island, Treasure Island, and various sites in San Diego, trying to capture the feeling of a particular place. She has a daily painting practice and tries to sketch with watercolor or spend time in her studio in Oakland every day.
Title: Watercolor & Pastels;: 1 Session
Instructor: Emily Weil
Date: November 16
Day & Time: Saturday, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Description: In this class we will learn to work chalk pastels and charcoal into your [very dry] watercolor painting. Starting with watercolor on paper, we will experiment with both abstract concepts and a loose interpretation of a still life. I will demo my loose-style of painting using the Daniel Smith triad (which may include an ink drawing), and then work into the dry watercolor painting with pastels. Pastels add pops of bright colors and can make a flat-looking watercolor painting looser, fun, abstract and a little wild. Come join us as we make lovely chalky messes!

Please wear clothes that can get paint on them. I will bring a can of spray-fixative for helping fix the pastels at the end of class.
