Watercolorists spend a lot of time learning about different tools for creating their art.  In this workshop we'll be looking at the paint itself.  Pigment characteristics are more important in watercolor than any other medium.  This means that selecting a watercolor paint involves much more than just picking a color.  Understanding pigment characteristics can provide a whole new set of options for the creative watercolorist.  Join local artist, John McLaren for this look and learn with watercolor. Intermediate level

DATE & TIME: Friday, October 26 / 6-8pm WHERE: Murray Art Guild WHAT: Artist talk and demo on all things pigment.  Including, but not limited to pigment characteristics, identifiers, what exactly is pigment anyway & just how do I use color charts!

DATE & TIME: Saturday, October 27 / 10am - 2pm (bring a sack lunch) WHERE: John & Cindy's Studio / 3954 Pottertown Road, Murray KY WHAT:  Putting it into practice.  We'll all be painting today as we look at mixing techniques, mixing creative 'mud,' tricks to creating new colors & analyzing palettes, and more!
