Deladier Almeida's ongoing exploration of aerial views of the man made landscapes of Northern California continues in March-April, with his newest collection of work, "Hidden Symmetries." Deladier wants to revisit the region's landscape as revealed from an aerial viewpoint. From the ground the land here is flat and contained, but from the air, the patterns created by farming, and the thousands of intersecting waterways bisecting the land, brings a new perspective.

Knowlton Gallery Workshop

Learn to PaintWATERMEDIA PAINTING WITH DALE LAITINEN
Mar 16-18
Knowlton Gallery
(209) 368-5123
115 S School Street, Suite 14, Lodi
http://www.knowltongallery.com

Watermedia Painting with Dale Laitinen is intended for artists of all levels who would like to develop their visual language from line, to edge, to shape, to complex shapes and design, through watermedia techniques. Students will focus on the relationship of line and shape to the abstract underpinnings of natural forms. Through both drawing and painting, we begin to see beyond the obvious description of things to the poetry of the subject. Demonstrations, talks, critiques, and individual instruction will not only include the practical applications of technique, color layering, shape making, and use of line in painting, but ways to access the indefinable reason for painting in the first place.

Covered in the workshop: Transparent watercolor techniques * Opaque watermedia * Traditional painting surfaces (watercolor paper) * Alternative painting surfaces (aquabord/clayboard) * Drawing for painting and in paintings * Interpreting landscape as personal language.

Dale Laitinen is best known for his watercolor paintings of the mountains and deserts of the Western United States. He is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society and Watercolor West. Laitinen has conducted workshops throughout the United States and in France. He lives and works in Mountain Ranch, California.

Tuition is $300.
