Color and Water Media Possibilities
Stephen Quiller
November 4-8, 2013 / $575

About the Workshop

This workshop will emphasize my approach to color as well as exciting water media possibilities. I will begin using transparent watercolor but throughout the week explore combinations of watercolor, acrylic and casein. Each medium will be used to its advantage in terms of visual qualities and handling characteristics. Each day I will demonstrate and work with participants individually. Please join me at the Jack Richeson studio and gallery in Wisconsin. It is a great teaching and work space and the Richeson museum and gallery housing over 400 works of art is adjacent to this space. It is an inspirational place for a workshop!


About the Artist

Stephen Quiller is an internationally known painter who works primarily in water media, monotypes, and intaglio printmaking. He is best known for his innovative approach to water media painting: watercolor, gouache, acrylic, casein and their combinations, and for his use of color. He has written six books, all published by Watson-Guptill:

His research and development of a color wheel for painters - called the “Quiller Wheel” - is now used by thousands of painters throughout the world. In addition, he has developed twelve instructional dvds produced by Crystal Productions, as well as two dvds produced by the Richeson Company in 2004.

Stephen Quiller has painted in many parts of the world, but is primarily known for his work done at or near his home in the high mountainous country of southern Colorado.  These subjects include beaver ponds, snow shadows, water patterns, wild iris, and mountain rhythms, capturing the spirit of the San Juans.  Through his painting, he has become a Signature member of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Rocky Mountain National Water Media, and Society for Painters in Acrylic and Casein, among others.  In 1997, he received the Greathouse medal and cash award in the 130th American Watercolor Society exhibition.

Stephen's paintings have been on the covers and the subject of articles in many leading art magazines. He has also been an invited juror for a number of regional and national art exhibitions.

A popular workshop instructor, he teaches his approach to color, water media, composition, and on-location painting, throughout North America and internationally.

Stephen shows in the Mission Gallery of Taos, New Mexico, and during the summer months he and his wife, Marta, operate their Quiller Gallery in Creede, Colorado.
