Known for blurring the line between watercolor and oil paintings, Beth Bathe?s unparalleled style evokes feelings of nostalgia, like an old sepia-toned photograph. Beth uses unconventional tools including squeegees and q-tips, along with her brushes focusing on composition, values, edges, and drawing rather than color. During this one-day intensive workshop, Beth shares her unique technique with students. In the morning Beth will do a demo and show how she uses photography and simple apps on her phone to simplify forms enhance value and emphasize composition. In the afternoon students will work from photos (either bring your own on your phone/ipad, or Beth will have prints to share). Students are encouraged to use water soluble oils to get the most out of the workshop. Beth will have paint for her students to try as well as one of her prepared painting panels.
