CLASS DESCRIPTION
Watercolor and pen and ink are the perfect portable media through which any place or setting can become a springboard for a creative sketch. An illustrated record of travels and seasons, sketching allows for a window into the moment. Bonni will demonstrate her facility with different approaches to sketching by melding water-soluble ink with watercolor paint and producing dynamic results.

Discover the power of the imperfect line and how a simple blush of color can convey so much! All levels are welcome. Bonni will demonstrate simple ways to launch into using pen and ink for the novice. This plein air class will sketch at different venues in and around Mendocino, beginning at the Mendocino Art Center.

 

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
BONNI CARVER writes, “My style is primarily impressionistic and my medium is watercolor. Simply put, watercolor has captured my heart. In addition to studio art classes I've taken at Cabrillo College and the San Francisco Academy of Art, my work reflects the influence of workshops I've taken with Charles Reid, Alvaro Castegnet, Barbara Nechis, Frank Webb and Skip Lawrence. In turn, I translate what I've learned into instruction through the workshops/classes I lead.

“A wise teacher once told me to paint what I love and learn to love what I paint; I apply that maxim to my work. The warm shadow under an awning, the tenderness of an embrace, the light bouncing off a sidewalk on a hot day, the irregularity of the cobblestone street in Mexico, etc., can be enough to ignite my heart. I have painted many different subjects, both plein air and studio subjects, in addition to commissioned portraits of people and pets.”
