Antonio Masi: A Modern Approach to Watercolor

Friday, Saturday, & SundayMorning_Ride_Antonio_Masi
October 13, 14, 15
10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Masi applies watercolor in a thick and juicy manner, giving his subjects a startling boldness. Learn how attention to detail and unusual perspective make for poetic, moody work with strong textural qualities. Through his modern approach he discovered that watercolor can also be used in a thick manner, and therefore can express the heaviest subjects imaginable.
