On Monday, July 25 and Tuesday, July 26, renowned and award-winning artist Paul George will offer a workshop, Painting the Light in Watercolor, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Bristol Art Museum. This is one of several workshops offered by the Museum this summer and George’s first in Bristol.
George has been recognized with more than 100 New England and national art awards and is a signature member of the Rockport and North Shore Art Associations. George is also a member of the New England Watercolor Society and is a Marine Master at the Maritime Gallery at Mystic Seaport. He was twice recognized with the gallery’s Award of Excellence. He has taught watercolor and oil painting classes since 1995 across the United States and Europe.
“I was fifty years old when I started painting and starting teaching a year later, so I have a special affinity for people, especially older folks, who are just starting or struggling to improve their painting,” said George, who lives on coastal New England providing him with limitless inspiration. ” I explain each step as I paint and answer any questions. The class can then paint the same photo or choose another or bring some of their own.”
The workshop will begin with a review of the basic materials and proceed to work from photos. A focus on the importance of creating light in paintings by studying shape, value, color, and edges will define this workshop as participants learn how to create drama and excitement in their work to produce winning paintings.
Individuals interested in registering for this class should send an email to email@example.com. Supply lists will be sent to students by the instructor and participants must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination.
