Meet Kathleen Alexander: “My paintings are usually about capturing a quiet moment in nature or in life. At the same time, I love to use strong, dynamic colors, and accentuate the contrast between light and shadow in my paintings to create depth and realism. Living on Maui has really been inspiring as an artist. The only way to describe it is to say that I had been living in black and white, and suddenly someone turned on the color”.
Join Kathleen for a three-day workshop on painting tropical flower in watercolor. Layering and glazing effects are used to create luminosity, depth and realism.
Student prerequisites: Basic knowledge of watercolor painting techniques.
A general materials list is here. An updated list of paints will be available one month prior to the workshop.
A northern California native, Kathleen has two adult children, and has lived on Maui with her husband of 30 years, Tom, since 2010.
