Monthly Meetings

Upcoming Meeting

Ronaldo Dorado

June 13, 7:30pm – 9pm
Maryland Hall – Room 205

Our featured artist for the June 13th meeting is AWC’s own Ronaldo Dorado, hot off the plein air circuit with lots of first place ribbons to show for it. Ronaldo is a self-taught artist who has been working in watercolor for the last 9 years. He works “en plein air” as well as in the studio and we look forward to seeing him create a loose, vibrant watercolor from a value sketch during the June meeting. It will be a great opportunity for all of us to learn how one can emphasize value differences while avoiding details and using a limited palette.

“Owl in Flight”

Our demonstrator at the May meeting was Sue Corrigan-Yo. Sue talked about her painting process from initial concept, value sketch, under-painting, layering, to finishing touches.  She  showed us a finished painting, ’Owl in Flight’, and worked on a second version of it to show us how she did it.  She had already completed the sketch and a background wash.  She demonstrated a neutral under-painting, layered washes to begin defining the final colors, and lifting to define the lighter areas of the feathers and body.
