Online Watercolor Workshop: The Art of Composition

Join Dennis for his next Online Watercolor Workshop titled:

The Art of Composition: Arranging The Pictorial Space

ONE-DAY ONLINE WATERCOLOR WORKSHOP

Friday, February 12, 2021, 10 am-2:30 pm

As painters, we wonder why some pieces work and others do not work. Often we think that rendering a subject as we see it will ensure a good painting. We never take the time to learn the rules of composition that “everybody knows” when in fact they don’t.


  • Do you have paintings that are not as satisfying as they should or could be?

  • Do you know how to analyze and improve a work gone wrong?

  • Are your paintings predictable and look like everyone else’s?

Great compositions don’t just happen! This workshop will teach you the mechanics of building a successful painting. You will learn different techniques to help position things on the paper. Study core compositional concepts as you:


  • UNDERSTAND HOW TO PLACE DOMINANT AND SUPPORTING FOCAL POINTS.

  • UNDERSTAND HOW TO UTILIZE VISUAL WEIGHT.

  • UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENT COMPOSITION STRUCTURES AND HOW TO MANIPULATE YOUR DESIGN.

  • UNDERSTAND THE DYNAMIC RELATIONSHIPS OF THE FRAME AND HOW POSITIONING CAN AFFECT WHAT WE WANT TO CONVEY.

  • AND A LOT MORE!


You will be receiving a workbook in the mail that you can use for future reference. The workshop is limited to 8 - 10 people to ensure a positive Zoom experience. I will announce the second workshop date should this one fill up.
