Frank Francese is a well- known watercolor artist and instructor. His liquid style is unique and distinctive. Frank
enjoys working on a very wet surface, letting the pure color mix itself on the paper. His shapes are large and
loose, often disregarding fine detail. Frank uses abrupt color changes of the same value with the white of the
watercolor paper to bring his paintings to life. The subject matter for Francese watercolors is always varied,
reflecting his national and international travels. About the Workshop: During our 4 day workshop Frank will
demonstrate two times per day with plenty of time for working on the concepts presented. Day 1 will include
nature scenes. The goal is for students to learn to apply the paint freely on the page and to start to understand
how to use the white of the paper. Day 2 we will paint rustic scenes placing manmade structures in the natural
landscape. The concepts of light source and shadowing will be introduced. City scenes are the focus of Day 3.
Learning what to include in your painting and what to leave out is stressed here. On Day 4 we will paint beach
scenes - boats and buildings in the tropics, the confusion of a harbor scene with fishing boats, working people or
the quiet sea villages in any part of the world. Visit frank’s website at to see more about him and his
beautiful paintings.
