Local Artist Spotlight - Taking the Scenic Route!

We took this week’s project to Folsom, California by featuring the local artist, Stephen Ward!

This week we explored the artwork of Stephen Ward. We recreated a piece from his Happy Series, “Happy? Yes!” This project used a technique called Watercolor Resist. Using crayons as a base, color jumped off the page when liquid water color was layered on top with foam brushes to bring our scenery alive! Making this water color our own was a blast!

This project included:

  • Recreating Stephen Ward’s bold, expressive color combinations
  • Discussing how to create a landscape that shows the illusion of space
  • Working with liquid water color to make our color choices pop
