    Workshop Instructor:

    The Baltimore Watercolor Society is excited to feature a workshop with award winning watercolor artist Lois Ward Wolford.


    Lois Ward Wolford NWS, BWS, PWCS 


    WORKSHOP SUBJECT:

    The Instructor will concentrate on shapes, color, values, and composition. She will discuss how to paint from selected photos, how to edit them and how to choose one with the potential for making a good painting.

    Rarely is our photo so perfect that it can’t be improved. We will look at ways of crop, move, eliminate and even add shapes when needed. Getting closer (and sometimes even closer) allows you to eliminate unnecessary detail and build a strong structure. It is that structure, not the details, that keeps the focus on the story you have to tell.

    The design elements and principle are your tools. By using these tools it is possible to get multiple paintings from one source.

    We will use both wet into wet, wet into dry, and negative painting techniques.







     

    RECOMMENDED EXPERIENCE:

    All levels (basic knowledge & some previous experiences strongly recommended to benefit from this workshop)

    All levels are welcome but students should have an understanding of the watercolor medium.

    Rounded Flat 10

    Paper   

    The demo with be done on a 1/2 sheet 140 lb. ARCHES, WATERFORD or other Professional Paper ( This Painting needs to be this size or larger to be able to paint the faces of the figures with some nuance) Have no fear:)

    Plan to bring either two half sheets or a full sheet of watercolor paper, if you don't know how to rip a full sheet in half. We will show you how to rip a full sheet during the workshop.

    Additional Supplies 

    Palette with wells for mixing colors, Magic eraser, kneaded eraser, pencil, Artist tape, board on which to clip your paper, paper towels, water container, plastic to cover your workstation.

    INSTRUCTIONS

    About 30 days before the event, you will receive an image from BWS that Lois will use to demonstrate. An image of Lois' line drawing will also be provided to those registered. 

    Once you have the images be sure to draw the line drawing on your own paper.  Lois will be working at 1/2 sheet size and it is recommended you do the same because painting the details is harder on smaller paper. You may trace Lois' drawing or trace the original photo where she has moved the figures closer together. 

    It is recommended you buy a full sheet (22" X 30") of watercolor paper and use a half sheet (22" X 15") for the painting. Bring both halves of the full sheet to the workshop.  If you do not know how to rip a full sheet in half, do your drawing on one half before the workshop and bring the full sheet to class. You will be shown during the workshop how to rip the paper in half.  If you want to learn prior to class there are videos on YouTube to help. Here is a link to one of the videos.

    BIOGRAPHY:

    A Little About Me:

    I knew I wanted to be an artist at age 10, I remember entering a contest on a match book cover. My parents were taken by surprise when they got a call from that contest company wanting me to take art lessons. Never got those lessons, but I did spend hours learning to draw from John Neagy. I still have one of his books in my home library. My love for art has been constant ever since those elementary school days. I attended both Maryland Institute Collage of Art and Towson University earning both a Bachelors and Masters degree. My first jobs were working as a layout artist for Stewart’s Department store and Reads Drug store. I later taught art to elementary children for 30 years and now teach art and workshops to adults. I can’t imagine life without art.

    It influences how I see and what I do everyday.

    I teach lessons in my home and taught for Plaza Art in Towson before COVID.

    I have taught workshops and juried shows in Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

    Lois Ward Wolford, a prize winning artist and signature member of the National Watercolor Society, the Baltimore Watercolor Society, and the Philadelphia Watercolor Society.

    Lois is a painter of watercolors and acrylics. She has works in both private and corporate collections in the USA and abroad. She is known for her figure paintings of people involved in everyday activities. Her paintings aim at capturing a moment in time.

    BWS maintains a workshop waiting list. When openings occur, BWS fills the openings from the waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis.

    BWS adds names to the waiting list according to the date and time.

    You can join the waiting list if a workshop is filled. There are often openings so it is worth doing if you are interested in the class.

    You can't join a waiting list before registration opens.

    Waiting List registrants - Do not send payment until you are informed of an opening and have been sent an invoice. Any check sent before you have been informed you have a spot will be destroyed.


    CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS:

    BWS makes decisions and incurs fixed costs based on the number of initial registrants. Cancellations can affect these costs even if there is a waiting list. In addition, cancellations incur processing fees and other costs paid by BWS as well as requiring extra time and organizational effort. Refunds for extenuating circumstances are at the discretion of the event coordinator.

    From registration date to 60 days prior to the event = 90% refund 

    59 days to 21days prior = 75% refund

    20 days to 8 days prior = 50% refund

    7 days or fewer = no refund

    In the event of inclement weather, the workshop will still be held unless the Hawthorn Center is unable to open or the workshop artist is unable to travel. If BWS cancels the workshop, then all paid registrants will receive a full pro-rata refund for those days that were cancelled.

    COVID POLICY:

    My assumption is that the COVID message below will not be necessary. 

    We anticipate that COVID-19 could continue to be an issue when this event is held due to new variants. While the current level is low, and would not require masking, we can not tell what April will bring. We make the decision on masking, for the benefit of the entire class, based on a variety of factors including the health departments reported COVID level, the preferences of the instructor and the number of registrants with expressed immune issues and health concerns.

    If you are immune compromised, or have health concerns, and doctors suggest those around you mask, please express this to

    Dana Kleinsteuber, the BWS workshop chair. kleinstk@verizon.net

    BWS understands that none of us like to wear a mask, including me. Please be prepared to wear a mask in this public space during this workshop/program, if requested, knowing that the decision was made after a great deal of consideration. That said, lets hope that things are looking good in April so we can go without them.

    • If you feel more comfortable wearing a mask feel free to do so at any time.
    • If you have decided you will never wear a mask again, even if requested by BWS, do not sign up for this class.

    Program Description

    Welcome spring with cherry blossoms. Joan Lok will share her magic of Sumi-e (Asian Brush Painting) in our BWS demonstration in April.  In this presentation, Joan will discuss sumi-e materials and techniques and how they differ from those of western watercolors. She will also show how tradition watercolor artists can use Sumi techniques.  She will introduce three ways of painting cherry blossoms: wet-on-wet opaque and transparent watercolor,ink contour and expressive brushwork.  Ignite your interest in the diverse beauty of freehand brush painting with Joan Lok.  



    Artist Joan Lok

    Joan Lok creates artworks that link Asian tradition to an adventurous, modern viewpoint. She specializes in sumi-e, the art of Asian brush painting.

    Her work won many awards including the Best of Show from the Sumi-e Society of America and Sumi-e Artists of Canada Joint Exhibition, the Kyoto Education Council Award in Japan, and the National Cherry Blossom Festival Contest in America.

    Her art is featured in “The Best Flower Paintings”, and “Stroke of Genius.”  Her “Chinese Brush Painting: Flowers” is a best-selling instruction book available in English, Dutch, French, Italian, and Spanish.

    Joan was the President of the Sumi-e Society of America, and the Vice President of the Lingnan Art Association of America. 

    A long-time signature artist member of BWS and workshop instructor at Plaza Art in Maryland, Joan moved to Central Florida when she retired in 2022 and started teaching online. 

    Her recent focus includes incorporating sumi-e techniques into watercolors for a refreshing appeal. Her work won the Best of show in 2023 Central Florida Watercolor Society, and Honorable Mention in Women in Watercolors International Competition.

    Visit www.joanlok.com for artwork images and access to her online workshops.    






    Supplies Joan Uses

    For watercolorists: 

    PaperRice paper – available at Plaza Artist Materials and many other art stores.  If you do not have rice paper, have blank white printer paper to play with during the demo.  Regular 140 lb. watercolor paper, hot or cold press, is workable but may be too thick for the wet-on-wet trick.

    Brushes:
    Rounds in 6, 8; a small detail brush.

    Colors:  
    perm. alizarin crimson, sap green, yellow ochre, perm. yellow light, vermillion, burst sienna.  (I use Winsor Newton, Holbein, and Daniel Smith) 

    Black – black sumi-e
    Ink if you have it.  If you only have watercolors, get one with a black tone, such as neutral tint.)

    White –I use Dr. Martin’s Bleed Proof White in a small jar
    You can also use Winsor Newton white gouache.  You’ll need gouache for the effect, transparent white will not work.   

    For artists familiar with sumi-e supplies, these are the specific supplies that I use: 

    Paper: Unsized Double Sheun/Xuen, Ma or Pi

    Brushes: Medium Combination (Long Flow), Small Hard (Mountain Horse), Fine (Leaf Vien.)

    Colors: Same as above.
