Saturday - Nicolas Lopez - Peru - Workshop 1 - The Language of Water


From: Saturday September 9, 2023, 10:00 am

To: Saturday September 9, 2023, 2:30 pm

The Language of Water

Using the Language of the Water Nicolas will explore the fundamental resources to try and figure out the meaning of water inside the watercolor landscape. He will compose with architectural lines and in order to avoid too much detail and rigidity in the composition, allowing the water to simplify the elements in his compositions and to paint together with him in a creative respectful dialogue.

Nicolas is known for his dark palette and intriguing landscapes and abstractions - using the wonderful granulation and materials available to him as a Daniel Smith Ambassador - Nicholas travels the world sharing his insights and generously his techniques - this will be a Workshop you won't forget!
