 aIMG_1672Sherrie Lovler starred in the colorful production, “Subtle Colors in the Night”, a workshop on January  12 & 13, 2008, brought to us by our illustrious talent scout, Yvonne Perez-Collins, who truly knows talent when she sees it!

The talent, experience and insight of our instructor were evident as she circulated throughout the class, offering suggestions of new ways to mix, apply or transition colors; giving participants “new eyes.”

Using watercolors and gouache on the several different black papers was interesting.  Discovering the different absorption properties and color intensities was instructive.  We learned to anticipate color changes as the paint was applied to the papers, as well as when it dried.

Sherrie made the class a truly communal sharing of materials, and the results were something that could not be achieved on one’s own without a huge outlay of money and  significant time spent in experimentation.  In other words, she made the class bigger than any one person’s experiences could be. It was a truly a valuable sharing of results, involving each participant and making the production of  “Subtle Colors in the Night” at least as memorable as “The Color Purple”.

Bravo, Sherrie, and to our talent scout as well! Thank you both for a most worthwhile workshop.

One exercise: Painting a color wheel. We were assigned different brands warm and cool primary colors of gouache + white. Then we had to smoothly make the transition from white to pure hue in 10 steps.
