Start With a Wash …

Ken Richmond

Sorry, this class is full. Please call if you would like to be added to the waiting list: 231-334-6112.

Washes are the underlying foundation of a good watercolor. They can even be an end in themselves. No matter what, they should be lively, expressive, and personal. Explore classic water color wash techniques in a series of exercises designed to loosen up and intensify your washes. Applying these fundamentals first to still life in the studio then to landscape outdoors each day, Richmond takes you through his systematic approach to creating better paintings … starting with the wash. His workshops are always high energy intense and lots of fun. Be prepared to paint a lot.

Ken Richmond is a Northwestern Michigan College watercolor instructor, Traverse City architect, and a

regional painter who has been dedicated to drawing and painting in northern Michigan for more than twenty years. His watercolors have been exhibited in galleries and arts venues and collected widely. His work is inspired by the classic watercolors of Winslow Homer, J. W. Turner, and Fairfield Porter; Ontario plein air painters The Group of Seven; as well as colorists Milton Avery and his peers. Ken is recognized locally as an arts leader and an innovative teacher. www.richmondarchitects.net.
