Angela Fehr Watercolor Workshop at Daniel Smith Seattle
January 17, 2021 - January 18, 2021
Landscape paintings come alive when they show the artist’s emotion and passion for the place they are depicting. Angela Fehr’s “heart-led” landscape painting approach is designed to free the artist from the tyranny of the reference photo, guiding students in developing strategies to show more of their own personal story in their landscape paintings. In this two day watercolor workshop, we’ll explore the basic elements that comprise a landscape painting, followed by understanding and applying the keys that will unlock your individual style as you express your emotions, memories and impressions of the places you’ve been to and hold deep feelings for.
Outline of Topics:
Preparing to paint: Creating a good foundation to really get you acquainted with your reference photo.
Understanding the framework of a landscape: Training your eye to see value, pattern, shape and color as the team that make up a powerful painting.
Unlocking creativity: Exercises to help you dig beyond what your photo tells you and bring your painting to life.
Who is this workshop for?
This is not a beginner watercolor workshop. Painters who have familiarity with watercolor techniques and are looking to become more confident in self-expression will get the most out of this workshop.
ABOUT THE ARTIST: A twenty-five year love affair with watercolor has taught Angela Fehr that it is the heart that gives life to our art.
“There is something about the fluidity of pairing paint and water and allowing them to collaborate on a page that is so captivating. It’s never boring, and always unexpected. I want something more for my paintings than simply to copy what I could see with my eyes. I want to show my heart in my paintings.”
In 2013, this rural Canadian artist found her calling when her first online course “Loose & Fluid Watercolor” was released on the internet. During these early days of online instruction, Angela’s gentle, open and authentic approach to teaching watercolor won her fans and dedicated students around the world. Since then, Angela’s courses have inspired thousands of students on the journey to becoming their own favorite artists. Her Fearless Artist student community is full of lively students exploring heart-led expression, posting their experiments and discussing ways to break out of fear and paint more authentically.
Angela’s message for her students is one of freedom – freedom to paint from the heart without fear. With a foundation in good technique as taught in her online classes, YouTube videos and workshops, students can embrace the enjoyment of a heart-led, intuitive painting style that is as unique as each artist.
