Workshops - Beyond Technique, Finding Individual Expression - LIVE GALLERY WORKSHOP

Beyond Technique, Finding Individual Expression - LIVE GALLERY WORKSHOP


A painter's painter, Frank Eber works in a direct, loose style influenced by the Old World masters. Typical in his art are color mixes and light that evoke nostalgia while remaining absolutely in the present. Frank's watercolor workshops reach beyond technique, encouraging individual expression and observing the elusive balance of forces that create beauty in painting. 

All levels are welcome but students should have an understanding of the watercolor medium and of simple one point perspective. ¨Frank stresses a solid foundation in the basics, “…so that our focus is on creating timeless art. An emotional link is necessary in our work, as well as the connection to the vibrancy of everything we paint.”
