Monthly meeting and workshop
FEBRUARY 17, 2021 (Wednesday)
MEMBERSHIP MEETING: 1:00 P.M. - 3:00 P.M.
PROGRAM: Mick McAndrews – Watercolor
Mick’s award-winning paintings strive to capture the mood and atmosphere of a subject, combining the magic of watercolor with reverence for the principles of design to create works of sophisticated simplicity. He is a signature member of the Philadelphia Watercolor Society (Crest Award), the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society (Sylvan Grouse Guild) and the Baltimore Watercolor Society. He is also an Artist Member of the Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association. Mick teaches watercolor workshops across the U.S. and abroad. He is a passionate painter who believes that time spent painting is precious. His goal is to draw and paint every day and he believes that the fastest way to artistic growth is through the activity of painting. He enjoys painting outside to take advantage of surroundings, natural light and the sights and sounds that influence each painter’s creative nature. Outside in nature’s studio is where he finds the greatest challenge and the greatest reward. He is challenged to capture the moment because light and its effects, reflections and cast shadows changes continuously. He is forced to simplify, to reduce the overwhelming complexity of what is in front of him into only the most important shapes and values. His nature is to be spontaneous so working loose and impressionistically appeals to him. The magic of watercolor is found in the partnership between artist and medium, of finding a balance between the knowledge, technique and skill of the painter while leaving room for the magic that makes watercolor so distinctive.
