Subject: landscape. Instructor: Duli García

Los Riegos organizes some landscape watercolor workshops and springtime and Redes seem the perfect time and place. Here you have the information of the type course.
Landscapes is one of the most popular pictorial themes among watercolorists, who find in it their greatest source of inspiration. And … what great landscapes can we paint in the Redes Natural Park! This workshop is aimed at those who love nature and watercolor as a form of artistic expression and want to spend an unforgettable weekend in a rural guesthouse, Los Riegos, located in one of the most beautiful places in Asturias.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This workshop mainly deals with the practical side of the watercolor technique. Painting outdoors means finding pictorial equivalents for the real world, not reproducing it down to the smallest detail. Making decisions and choosing what will be incorporated or suppressed, thinking whether to exaggerate a certain characteristic, such as light, or certain spaces…
Of course all these “decisions” can be consulted with the teacher and be discussed at the afternoon meeting.
