Nick Runge | "Stylized Watercolor" | (Online Workshop Only)
"When devising "Stylized Watercolor", my new digital workshop for NOH / WAVE / ACADEMY, I set out to create an easy to follow blueprint for watercolor portraiture. I have carefully honed this simplified process over the course of many years to help guide you through a seemingly complex watercolor portrait from the ground up.
While creating your own unique representational piece of art, you will learn how to break down your reference into multiple layered transparent shapes. Expressive and dynamic color applied to the proper value, structure, and likeness is key to unlocking your own personal style.
There are a lot of details to focus on while creating a portrait, but with a little guidance I can help show you the way.”

Born in 1985, artist Nick Runge grew up in Colorado. Coming from a creative family of professional artists, he was always interested in drawing and imagining ideas visually. After working as an illustrator full time from 2004-2015 he shifted focus to more personal work using oils and watercolor.
As a portrait/figurative painter, Nick works from life as well as photography, describing his art as something close to “abstracted realism”, with an objective of expressing as much of the realistic human element of life as possible through a limited and often simplified approach to his rendering or brushwork, giving an illusion of realism while, at the same time, breaking shapes and form down enough to have a close balance with abstraction.
