Workshop: June 27 – 30, 2019; FOUR DAYS fee: $695 CAN
Like California’s San Andreas fault line, David Lobenberg likes to shake things up. He applies watercolor paint to paper with splatters, swabs, slaps, splats, and slashes.It is added, subtracted, and added again. He floods, blossoms, and textures. His style is about gesture, no-holds-barred expressive colour, odd shapes in odd places, soft translucency and hard opacity. This Golden State artist calls it “California-Vibe Watercolor”.
In Lobenberg’s workshop, you’ll paint several watercolor studies in mono-color and full color that will acquaint yourself with his techniques. Outline drawings will be available that can be traced onto your watercolor paper allowing you to focus exclusively on this process. Follow step-by-step demonstrations from painting start to painting finish. After all the studies are completed; you will be ready to shake things up with your own personal piece, California-Vibe style!
David Lobenberg’s watercolor paintings can be found in private, public, and corporation collections across the country. He has had his work published national and internationally in American Artist Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine, American Art Collector Magazine, Plein Air Magazine, the French art Magazine, Pratique Des Art, and the European magazine, The World of Watercolour.
