Istanbul Scenery in Watercolor
Artist Workshop: Gabrielle Reeves
Under the guidance of artist Gabrielle Reeves, participants study and reinterpret scenery paintings in the Orientalist Paintings Collection of Pera Museum. They learn how they can use drawing and watercolor techniques to paint a modern picture of Istanbul, and they also experiment with colors in order to learn how to create atmospheric perspective, and stimulate certain emotions. This workshop sets the participants on a creative discovery of basic drawing and watercolor techniques such as the theory of color, color mixing and application processes. The painting produced in this workshop turns out to be a colorful and modern interpretation of the orientalist Istanbul paintings.
