Create a painting influenced by John Singer Sargent's brilliant reflections and reflected light dancing on the hulls of his luminous watercolor, White Ships. Jennifer Koury will lead participants visually through the original while participants discuss Sargent's use of materials, composition, value, color, and brushstrokes, as well as, have the opportunity to extend his painting in their own style and imagery.
Instructor will provide a drawing from a portion of Sargent's original. Students may extend their painting with personal imagery to continue learning from Sargent's approach.
Jennifer Koury, a watercolorist, delights in both the natural world's play of light and color on forms, and watercolor's whimsical properties: color bleeding, reticulation and natural paint sediments. Koury has enjoyed a rewarding career as a dedicated painter and freelance illustrator. She is published in both children's and adult based books. Her work is featured at George Washington's Mount Vernon and Yuma Regional Medical Center, Arizona. After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Painting and Printmaking, Koury continued her studies to graduate from the Art Center College of Design, California. She resides with her family in Buffalo and is inspired by the natural beauty of Western New York.
