Linda Kemp Workshop

Linda Kemp Teaching at CMW

Linda Kemp teaching CMW members at the Paramount

Watercolor artist and teacher Linda Kemp delivered an intense 4-day workshop at the Paramount. So much information and so little time! Lucky CMW members spent 4 days with Linda Kemp learning her methods and secrets to her stunning paintings. Later we spent more time bonding as a group with Linda at Anton’s restaurant Friday evening. Fifteen CMW members and 4 other painters from Iowa and other Minnesota locations enjoyed Linda Kemp’s negative painting expertise emphasizing hue, value and intensity at the Paramount Visual Arts Center April 23 through April 26.

Her informative and friendly “painting out loud” compels her audience to eagerly attend every word and demonstration. Building from a delicately hued underpainting she builds her composition methodically applying her technique of forming shapes emphasizing negative spaces with layered color, coaxing aesthetically pleasing images. Those images inform her next steps.

Questions were welcomed resulting in additional insights and interesting anecdotes. Linda is direct and positive as she provides
feedback to her students.
