This class is more than creating a realistic portrait in watercolor, but also capturing the soul of the person. Principles for creating depth, realism, personality, and conveying the mood will be demonstrated. The Instructor will demonstrate the process of layering and juxtaposing for beautiful skin tones. The student will use “lost and found” techniques in the elements of art and a synchronized order of importance to lead the viewer’s eye and effectively tell the story. The majority of the class time will be on one “head study” but will take time for several small demonstrations to help explain various techniques and principles. Other techniques students will learn include juxtaposing colors, using a drawing as a “map”, creating soft/lost edges, wet into wet, dry into damp, using complementary grays for beautiful color, warm to cool color theory, transparent layering and negative painting.
A supply list will be offered upon registering for the class. Take advantage of this master artist to improve and create amazing watercolor portraits!

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Dylan Scott Pierce
Born 1986 in Marietta, Ga
Upon realizing at an early age his enjoyment of drawing and painting, Dylan was encouraged to pursue his passion in art. . Homeschooling allowed Dylan plenty of time to paint and gain inspiration from his travels. From the age of twelve he has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions around the country.
Dylan currently resides in the Atlanta, Ga area where he studied at Chris diDomizio's art school for ten years. What he acquired from his teacher's insights of works by various
masters of art through history became a strong influence in Dylan's work.
Dylan's paintings have been featured in International Artist, Watercolor, Wildlife Art, L'Art de Aquarelle, and numerous other publications.
Dylan's oeuvre depicting the people of Africa is inspired by his visits to Swaziland, Botswana, and South Africa. Experiencing the extraordinary beauty of Africa and its astonishing variety of wildlife has been something Dylan dreamed of as a boy; yet meeting the people of Africa deeply affected him. The beauty of God's varied wonders continues to inspire him - as he paints the beauty and breadth of wildlife and people with an ability to "capture the soul."
