California Vibe Watercolor Portraiture with David Lobenberg

Call for Waiting List!
David Lobenberg Workshop 
B-A

Thursday, Friday & Saturday, 9:00-4:00
Session 1: Feb 22, 23, 24, 2018 – Full

Sunday, Monday & Tuesday, 9:00-4:00
Session 2: Feb 25, 26, 27, 2018 – Full

Like California’s San Andreas fault line, David Lobenberg likes to shake things up. He applies watercolor paint to paper with splatters, swabs, slaps, splats, and slashes. It is added, subtracted, and added again. He floods, blossoms, and textures. His style is about gesture, no-holds-barred expressive color, odd shapes in odd places, soft transparency and hard opacity. This Golden State artist calls it “California-Vibe Portraiture”. In his three-day workshop, you too will learn how to shake It up starting with David’s method of posing and taking photographs of your subjects to tracing out simple outline contour drawings of their head and features from the photographs. The drawings are then easily traced onto sheets of watercolor paper from quarter to full sheet size. After that, it’s time to California-Vibe them! David Lobenberg’s watercolor paintings can be found in private, public, and corporate collections across the country. He has had his work published nationally and internationally in American Artist Magazine, Southwest Art Magazine, American Art Collector Magazine, Plein Air Magazine, the French art magazine, Pratique Des Art, Plein Air Magazine, The Palette Magazine, and the European magazine, The World of Watercolour.
