Title: DonJ, MWA Workshop
Post by Admin on Nov 24th, 2003 at 5:25am
Maui Watercolor Association
Don Jusko's Lecture, Work Shop, Paint Out          
11-14 to16-03, Kamaoili Looking Toward Kaoolawi Island, Hawaii

This 3' wide demonstration model of the 12 Star RCW has removable color sections. Each color was made dark by mixing in the opposite color.

9:00 Friday morning, Grandma's Coffee House. I introduced my Real Color Wheel to 12 artists. Talked about drawing 60 degree images, linear triangulation, concentric outlines on the tops of simular distanced forms to show aerial perspective distance, mixing dark colors with opposition colors, and making split-complement colors. No one used black pigment.

Jim Redden, Susann Gordon, Cyrina Bettencourt, Astrid, Maha Conyers,
Ada Horn, Barbara Steinberg-Orlowski, Karen Camera, Laurna Malkovich, Robin
Ricards and Johnathan Orlowski's knees. Sorry John.

This is my painting, Don Jusko, on day two, the first day was a lecture and drawing on location only. Some of us started laying in color.

Don, day 3

James Redden.

James's second painting.

It shows everything we talked about. Making ultramarine blue with purple or magenta and cyan. Drawing distances on concentric lines around you by following the top edges of forms. You can see James did this very well in the drawing.
All of his patterns are outlined. His distant colors are made of the split
complement colors purple and green, his foreground darks for green are made from the complements magenta and green.

When painting in the patterns in.. it is best to paint areas in all the way up to the line, jump a pattern and leave it white and start another non attached pattern while the first pattern is drying.

The sharp white line with the dark shadow was made by cutting into the paper at a slant and bending it back at the cut. Color the line in if you want.

The jumping scratch was made by scratching the paper with the point of the razor.

Here the color was replaced by sand papering it out with 150 grid wet or dry sandpaper. Use it dry :)
