Wet on Wet Watercolor Painting

Saturday, July 30, 2016, 10 am-4 pm

A Workshop with Colin Matthes

Fee: $85/ $75 members (all materials included)

Registration: Advance registration required. Register

by phone at 414-446-8794.

In this workshop we will follow in the steps of J. M. W. Turner, Marlene Dumas, and Peter Doig. Using Lynden's landscape as subject and wet on wet watercolor as medium, we will make paintings that focus on the ephemeral nature of the wet on wet process and a personal interpretation of the landscape. This workshop is open to beginners as well as experienced painters (who are welcome to bring their own watercolors).

Bring a bag lunch and beverages and dress for the outdoors. We’ll be making use of Lynden’s 40 beautiful acres during our breaks, weather permitting.

About the Artist

Colin Matthes makes interdisciplinary work about engineering the absurd, which allows him to address economic and environmental crisis from a funny, critical, and perversely industrious point of view. Matthes has exhibited internationally in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Antwerp, Dublin, Houston, Seville, Ljubljana, Melbourne, and Berlin. He has participated in numerous residencies including Hotel Pupik (Austria), Werkkamp (Belgium), and Cow House Studios (Ireland). He won the Mary L Nohl Fellowship for Individual Artists in 2012 (Established) and 2007 (Emerging). Matthes works collectively with Justseeds, and is teaching artist for Lynden's 2016 Innovative Educators Institute.
