Yidan Guo: Watercolor Plein Air
September 30 @ 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm
How to paint landscapes with heavy duty watercolor? How to layout a aesthetically beautiful composition of a landscape painting? How to bravely and quickly spread out foundation colors of a watercolor painting? In my demo, I would like to cover these issues that artists usually struggle with.
Yidan Guo is a visiting professor teaching at Southern Utah University. Before this, she was a faculty member who taught at the School of Arts, Renmin University (The People’s University) in Beijing, China, since 2000.
Watercolor gratifies Yidan’s love of the wonders of nature. For Yidan, doing art is meditation, a mode of communicating with the divine Existence. Most of her journeys have been as a solo traveler, and Yidan’s journey into unfamiliar terrain always brings her the feelings of adventure, of tension, of vulnerability, of culmination–as well as the pervasive emotion of homesickness.
