New Workshop for 2017

Moving into a larger format with watercolor requires an understanding that
everything we know about the medium changes exponentially. More water. More
paint. Bigger brushes. Huge washes. It's exhilarating.

Michael Ireland

 Michael Ireland has participated in the creative process for over forty years beginning with his studies at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. Under the direction of master instructor Irving Shapiro, he began to explore the effects of light and color through transparent watercolor. He soon developed a passion for the medium that continued throughout his life and career. Today Michael is a nationally recognized painter as well as an accomplished creative director and graphic designer.

 

 Michael’s painting style and technique challenges the scale and format associated with traditional transparent watercolor resulting in some of his recent works measuring up to over twenty feet in length. This process and approach has led to his artwork being placed in public and private collections throughout the country.

Michael’s home and studio is in Cary, Illinois where he resides with his wife and four children.
