    Join watercolor artist Richie Vios as he addresses the topic, "Atmospheric High-Noon in Watercolor." Painting a High-Noon source of light is not ideal however in watercolor is a plus factor, the detail is minimized since it's covered with shadow most of the time, and your focus is more on Shapes, Tonal Values, and Colors are naturally saturated which is characteristic in watercolor. Adding careful handling of edges to create an atmospheric perspective and mode. In short, I will demonstrate The Four Pillars of a Great Painting  Shape, Tonal Values, Edges, and Color as tools to reach your full potential as a watercolorist.

    Artist Suzie Baker will make a presentation "Dawn with Her Rose-red Fingers." Suzie says "Who doesn't love a sunrise or sunset? Homer (of The Iliad and The Odyssey) did when describing "dawn with her rose-red fingers." I assume Homer Simpson does too, being a man of refined taste. Understanding why sunrises and sunsets behave the way they do can help us paint this fleeting time of day with insight and confidence. Come watch me demonstrate sunset painting to give you ideas on approaching your next attempt at this popular genre."

     The presentation will be at the wet room in Apalachicola at the Armory, and is scheduled from 12:00 noon - 1:00 pm. Open and free to everyone!
