Gordon Bashant is a resident of San Diego after retiring from a surgical practice in Utica NY. He began painting about 20 years ago taking watercolor classes at Munson Williams Proctor Institute in Utica. He has continued studies since moving to San Diego and has worked with various artists here and in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico. He works primarily in transparent watercolor but also does some work in acrylics and mixed media. His style is expressionistic but based on realism. He distorts by both line and color to acquire the unique recognizable style.

Gordon will demo a way to liven up paintings with lots of color and calligraphy 

Workshop goal to encourage personal style.
Gordon will also demonstrate paper mounting on canvas. Because this takes time to dry and mount,
Gordon will show steps involved rather than have everyone do this demo.

Supplies to bring:

Bring good watercolor paper. Cold pressed Arches or what you use. 1/2 sheet is good size.
Paints of choice (acrylic or watercolor).
White pastel stick.  
Your own photo reference or a vivid imagination to wing it
