Insight & Inspiration - Members Show




Beginning and Intermediate Watercolor Painting

Join watercolorist Judson Monroe for a lively, step-by-step approach to watercolor painting techniques and concepts. Students at any level will gain practical knowledge about watercolor paint, paper, brushes and other supplies while learning the basics of composition, colors, light and shadow and more. Judson will offer short demos and easy subject materials to help students get acquainted with and practice watercolor’s unique properties. Students will have the opportunity to advance by learning to copy master paintings. This practice has been used to hone artist’s skills for centuries, and is an exercise that helps students no matter their level of experience. It also provides a comfortable exercise for anyone’s very first effort with watercolor. Judson recommends master copies to anyone who has always been interested in, but, intimidated by watercolor.

Materials list will be sent upon enrollment.

Judson Monroe (b.1985) began his training at age 12 after meeting Charles Cecil, a well-known artist who has conducted a popular painting school in Florence for 35 years.  Judson returned as a young man to attend the Florence Academy of Art to further his art education. While he was a full time student he used summers and breaks to supplement his FAA education with different private classes offered by artists locally. Eventually, Judson became the Florence Academy’s Director of Art History and during his tenure, gained a particular admiration for Italian 19th century art. Judson currently resides in Santa Rosa, California with his wife and three children, finding the time to paint as much as possible.
