Watercolor Workshop at Petroglyphe Gallery

Tracy Lewis Minding the Muse

Learn how to create fun and stylized ink drawings with delicate watercolor glazes.  In this class participants will learn step by step how to transfer and stylize a drawing with ink, and lay in watercolor glazes. We will also explore more examples of how you can use line and color to make other beautiful compositions. This workshop is for all skill levels.

Tracy works primarily in transparent watercolor and is a purest in her approach to the medium. Layering luminous, transparent glazes of pure hue give her work a candy coat of Easter-like color. Her art is fairly realistic with a stylistic twist. Tracy embellishes her pieces with little abstract patterns and she enjoys playing with paradoxical juxtapositions, zeroing in on things that elevate the ordinary to the sublime.  Tracy’s teachers have been watercolor geniuses, Gary Pruner and Jeannie Vodden, as evidenced in her strikingly fresh and fluid work.

Art Nouveau, silent movies, flea markets, vintage clothing, Paris, swirly patterns, polka dot, symbolism, animal skulls, flowers, belly dancers, fairy tales and tattoos have all influenced her art.

This workshop is offered indoors at Quarry Hill Studio in Petroglyphe Gallery. The studio holds the resonance of a diversely creative world offered by seasoned artists sharing their process with blossoming students.
