When: March 26th at 11:00 am (PST)
Watercolours and Waterscapes
Join local BC artist James Koll as he shares his approach to painting a waterscape subject in watercolour.
In addition to offering tips and tricks on portraying water effectively and convincingly in any medium, this demo will guide participants through a step-by-step approach to using the unique properties of watercolour to their full advantage. Combining the incredible sharpness achievable with wet-on-dry technique with the magic of wet-on-wet, James will demonstrate how to confidently control this unforgiving yet immensely rewarding medium.
Participants will also be shown the use of a primary/secondary palette to achieve vibrant, natural-looking colours in their paintings.

James Koll is an artist born and raised in the lower mainland of British Columbia where his passion for drawing and painting developed at a very early age. Trained during the 80s in Commercial Art at Capilano College (now Capilano University), he is currently focused on pursuing his fine art, specializing in watercolour.
He has become known for meticulously executed realism in watercolour and acrylic, but his love of plein air painting and recent foray into leading weekly virtual paint-along sessions are pushing him in a more spontaneous and painterly direction.
