Blackwell North Amer
The secret to Wiegardt's relaxed style starts with the big shapes. ("As long as the big shapes are right, the small ones will take care of themselves.") By laying down large, unifying value patterns, you free yourself to fully explore the spontaneity of watercolor.
To help you evoke the "magic" of the medium, Wiegardt shares a unique way of working with transitional degrees of wetness (paper that is damp in spots and dry in others) to create paintings with an endless variety of beautiful edges - from razor sharp to lost and soft - and subtle, small shapes that "stir the viewer's mind to see more than what is actually there."
Throughout, demonstrations take you, step by step, through the creation of expressive still lifes, florals, seascapes, landscapes and street scenes.
