Wet-on-Wet Watercolor Painting

Saturday, July 22, 2017, 10 am-4 pm

A Workshop with Colin Matthes


Painting by Colin Matthes.

Fee: $85/ $75 members (all materials included)
Registration: Space is limited; 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). Basic watercolor supplies will be provided.

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 was teaching artist for Lynden's 2016 Innovative Educators Institute.
