     PENNSYLVANIA WATERCOLOR ARTISTS   Frank Webb

"With large flat brushes and plenty of water I approach the paper in slam-bang initial washes, and end with the caress of a butterfly wing. Fused into the paint is my delight as qualities and relations emerge from the process. Thus, a new reality is re-created which began with observation but goes beyond what is to what ought to be." Frank is a founding member of international watercolors.

DAY 1
SAY IT WITH FLUENCY, FLUIDITY AND COURAGE
They say the apple is 90% water. Lets get to the core of painting by jumping into more water. In this workshop we pounce on a wet paper with a ferocious all over looseness that gives your paper an authority like no other attack. So often we resort to defensive painting, now is the time to go on the offensive. Dare to be bold. If you can’t pronounce a word say it loud.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM
A WEBB WORKSHOP?

Do you love paint? Are you often found hovering over your easel, brush in hand, palette set with clear color, acres of previous papers trailing behind you while aiming to communicate with your unseen audience by means of marks on paper, mindful of difficulties, limitations, countless false starts and failures; yet, dedicated to producing work of higher significance?

If you see yourself in this scenario, then consider joining me and other painters in this watercolor painting workshop. All levels of ability save rank beginners are welcome. The single, most important focus will be pictorial design, which includes planning, color, tonal values, expression and visual theme. Demonstrations, personal instruction and objective criticism will sharpen your critical powers. Not only will you gain a better understanding of the painting process, but you will be confident in your new found skills.

Bring along drawings, photos or old paintings to serve as your subjects. With your regular painting gear include a soft pencil and sketch paper to plan exciting designs before painting. If this is a new procedure for you, guidance will be available.

Along with Science, Theology and Philosophy, Art is one of the four grand inquiries. Those bound together by art form some of life’s most significant associations. Expect to meet new friends. When returning from the workshop to the solitude of our own studios we will be recharged by that temporary collaboration with gallant peers.

DAY 2
GET THE HORSE SENSE OF STRUCTURE IN YOUR WORK
Too many paintings languish in a bog of mediocrity. A good painting should not merely copy the model should be built with the bricks of design principles. These can be learned. Armed with design principles you may not only better judge the production of other artists, but more importantly you will be provided with a tribunal to judge your own work.

DAY 3
BUILD YOUR PICTURE
WITH LAYERS
Here is a key to making your painting glow with mysterious radiance. Learn to analyze your subject in layers and then paint them one at a time. Transparency is one of watercolor’s greatest characteristics. Shapemaking is made easier and more fun when we learn to make glorious washes that communicate our delight and decorate our papers with pizzazz and transparency.

DAY 4
WORKING WITH
COLOR GALORE
Color is the daily bread of painting. When one says painting one says color. Is your color merely descriptive and copied in a hum drum way? Learn in this session how to use color with strategy and for the sake of expression. Color is not something that comes from the model but should come from the palette. Let us learn to keep some of the beauty of color that comes out of the tube. Often we corrupt our color with too much niggling.

DAY 5
LEARN TO MAKE
BRUSH-TIP CALLIGRAPHY
Calligraphy means beautiful graphic marks. Most any painting will exude more pep if it has the dash of calligraphy. It also is the key to personalizing your painting. We will explore the differences between the pointed brush and the flat brush. Usually it is a partial statement combined with another partial statement of washes. The partial statement in art invites the beholder to collaborate in finishing the painting.

Composition is the gravity that holds a painting together. In the actual world things exist in accidental position. In the space of a painting the painter must deliberately create right relations of the parts to the whole. Here, example-by-example, you'll see how to compose. The work of 24 professional artists included in this book gives you an over the shoulder look at how to apply composition techniques. Armed with this information, you can paint a powerful picture and—equally important—you can analyze and improve a work that has gone wrong. Through an organized, disciplined text punctuated with revealing illustrations, the author guides the reader in the skills and thinking process. This is a sound book, full of useful advice all serious students and professionals are sure to find helpful, revealing and rewarding.

Frank Webb, A.W.S. (DF) N.W.S.

   Going beyond the usual technical display of watercolor, Webb’s paintings express his interest in the creative concept and design principles. He stresses the importance of seeing, feeling, and responding to possibilities while synthesizing realism with abstractionism. Webb covers a broad spectrum of subjects beyond traditional landscapes. His unusually sophisticated and idiosyncratic approach to watercolor is set forth in his three books: “Watercolor Energies,” “Webb on Watercolor,” and “Composition For The Painter.” In these books he explores design, expression and the philosophy of art. He has also made five instructional DVDs.

   Sixty years as a professional artist back up Webb’s current activities in painting, lecturing, jurying and writing. As an invited instructor he has conducted hundreds of workshops in 50 states and throughout the world. In 2006 American Artist Magazine included Frank Webb in an article “20 Great Watercolor Teachers.”

   Among his more than 100 major awards are included the American Watercolor Society’s Bronze Medal of Honor, the Walser Greathouse Medal, the Alan Chiara and the Mary Pleissner Award. Other honors include: the Sisek Award of the Butler Institute of American Art, the Baskerville/Stary Sheets Award of the National Watercolor Society and the Gold Medal of Audubon Artists. In 2000 he received the Philadelphia Water Color Society’s Award for Achievement in the Arts and has earned Master Status with the National Transparent Watercolor Society. He is a vice president and dolphin fellow of the American Watercolor Society and holds memberships in several art associations including, the National Watercolor Society, Allied Artists of America, Audubon Artists, and the Rocky Mountain National Water Media Association. He is an honorary member of the Jiangsu (China) Watercolor Research Institute.

   Webb has represented the American Watercolor Society in international exhibitions in Canada, New York, England, Scotland, Mexico City, and has been included in invitational exhibitions in China and Australia. He is listed in “Who’s Who in American Art,” and “Who’s Who in the East.” Collectors of Webb’s art include: the Butler Institute of American Art, the Baylor Collection, the Tweed Art Museum of the University of Minnesota, the Palmer Museum of Penn State University, the Taiwan Art Education Institute, The Lakes Art Center, and the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art.
