7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Lisa Fertig fell in love with watercolor over 25 years ago and today loves to paint realistically in watercolor and non-objectively in acrylics.
Painting in two distinct styles, representational and non-objectively which may at first appear irreconcilable but are in fact two aspects of the same journey. For one, Lisa ventures out. For the other, she ventures in. For both, the outcome is the same.
Her realistic paintings often draw on her love of the beauty of the changing seasons, inspired by growing up in Northern Minnesota. Her representational style of painting records her response to the environment and allows her to re-experience the feeling of an actual place.
Teaching, participation is art fairs, and gallery representation keeps her enthusiastic about painting.
Lisa will be demonstrating her process for a realistic landscape watercolor and sharing information on color properties throughout the process.
Lisa Fertig received formal art training at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, with further studies at the University of Minnesota, the Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and Atelier Lack. She teaches watercolor classes at the White Bear Center for the Arts. For more information, please visit her website at www.lisafertig.com
