Painting the light in Watercolor with Vladislav Yeliseyev – cancelled

January 24 @ 9:00 am - January 26 @ 4:00 pm


What is required to quit tight illustrative coloring and start painting like a pro?

Students are going to learn how to mix and apply watercolors without fear of being inaccurate. Vlad will show you the shortcuts to the path when every brushstroke applied is significant in its impact on the viewer. He will show you the importance of one detail above the other and therefore how to be selective in your painting process. Every painting is like a poetry, the less words wasted the more powerful message it conveys. On the technical side of things you will learn how to approach urban scenery and what are the major steps involved in achieving artistic results including composition, focal point and light distribution.

All reference materials will be provided by the instructor. The workshop will start with a lecture and demonstrations and follow with one-on-one instructions.


This workshop has been cancelled.

What people are saying about Vladislav’s workshops:

“I just wanted to let you know that I had a wonderful time in Laguna Beach and San Juan Capistrano with Vladislav. He is an excellent instructor. He is fun, energetic and most of all, he helped all his students on a personal level. I’ve taken other workshops before but felt that I came out more confused. Vlad helped me pinpoint my weak points and I feel confident that with practice, I can improve with the wisdom that he taught. I hope to work with him again in the future.” Scott
“I was privileged to attend this amazing workshop! It was my first watercolor workshop and all the other participants said it was the best they’d ever been to. Vlad was a great and inspiring teacher with a wonderful sense of humor! I am practicing every day what I learned! The sketches were so helpful in this workshop and I’ve continued with this practice since coming home. I’m so glad to have attended this workshop! Doing the sketches have really made a difference. Thank you Vlad for your patience and generous gift of teaching!” – Brenda L.

What a workshop!!! I was so impressed by Vlad.  What a wonderful teacher.  I told my husband when I got home that I was so happy because at long last I could almost feel the pieces starting to come together.  The drawing lessons were just right on target for me and the way he showed us how to actually do his technique to get a much longed for effect at the end of our very own brushes….well – what can I say. And the color!I am so thankful.” – Janet K
