August 8-10, 2016 / 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Join 2016 Adirondacks National Exhibition of American Watercolors Juror of Awards and Walkabout Leader, Carolyn Lord in a fun and intensive 3 day watercolor workshop.
Plein Air watercolor painting is a wonderful way to develop artistic skills while enjoying the summer gardens of Old Forge. A successful watercolor painting integrates the unique qualities of watercolor paint and paper with all of the traditional concerns of the artists: composition, perspective, light, form, color. The workshop will utilize the studio-classroom to develop the students’ art skills through lecture and exercises. In the garden, students will practice these skills and become familiar with Carolyn’s approach to watercolor painting. Rain or extreme heat could determine each day’s schedule: be prepared to be flexible!
Carolyn Lord was introduced to the California Regional watercolorist tradition by James Green (1911-2005) while attending Principia College in Illinois. During and after college she attended workshops with other watercolorists including Millard Sheets and George Post. Early in her career, Lord traveled to paint watercolors in Europe, South American, South Pacific, and the Western United States. Lord’s current motifs are California vernacular architecture, gardens, and landscapes. Lord is currently represented by galleries in California, Utah, and Colorado, and is a Signature member of both the California Art Club and the National Watercolor Society. Lord demonstrated watercolor painting at the 2014 Plein Air Convention, and was a featured artist in the February 2015 issue of Watercolor Artist Magazine. The ANEAW has been a perennial part of Lord’s career, receiving awards in 1987 and ’89, and served as Juror of Selection in 1993. She has been invited to serve as ANEAW’s Judge of Awards in 2016.
