Art Demo: Design & Composition

The key component to every piece of art is design. Watercolorist Spencer Meagher will take you inside his composition process. He begins by laying out the painting, deciding what can stay and what has to go. Next, he breaks the subject into large shapes with a quick sketch, followed by laying in a very wet wash of background color. Larger value forms are developed through color and negative painting. In the last stages, Spencer employs simple flecks and applications of paint to accentuate the final image. Provided in partnership with the DuPage Art League.
