Learn to solve common painting problemsWritten by Admin
The Art League of the Smokies will meet at 6:15 p.m. July 5 at the Swain County Center for the Arts in Bryson City to show the video “Charles Reid’s Watercolor Solutions.”
During the 120-minute video, Reid shares his artistic insight and teaching methods as he illustrates how to use watercolors in a simple, loose and atmospheric style, which captures the essence of the subject. He reveals how to solve many of the issues beginner and intermediate artists face as he recreates four paintings which were originally completed by amateurs: “Organic Harvest,” “St. Paul’s Cathedral from the Millennium Bridge,” “Self-Portrait” and “Morning Stroll.” The Swain County Center for the Arts and Swain County Schools are sponsoring the free event.
Reid is a professional artist and teacher who specializes in watercolor. His paintings are fresh and spontaneous, displaying a profound understanding of light and color. His artwork is on display in public, private and corporate collections around the world. Reid has authored 11 books on watercolor and oil painting.
