Karlyn Holman

Seascape

Karlyn Holman is completely immersed in the world of art. Karlyn’s watercolor paintings reflect a special exuberance for her native area of Lake Superior and her travels around the world.

Press Release by Norm Freyer

..

The 2017 fall program of talented artists that have appeared in demonstrations and workshops at the Citrus Watercolor Society (CWS) have been superb! And the first visiting artist in 2018, Karlyn Holman, is no exception. This is another “must see” for all members of the CWS. Karlyn will demonstrate at the Friday, January 12 meeting of the CWS. She is an internationally recognized artist, author and art instructor. She has owned and operated an art gallery since 1968. She is a prolific artist with a busy teaching schedule. Nature is the driving force in her paintings, whether abstract or realistic. Karlyn has a loose, spontaneous painting style and an energetic, encouraging teaching style. She has an MA in Art from the University of Wisconsin and has taught at the college level for ten years. She makes her home in Washburn, Wisconsin.

She remarks, “Watercolor has always intrigued me. I enjoy the challenge of trying to control this elusive medium and I love the luminosity that transparent paint can produce. Watercolor is a balancing act between control and spontaneity. My most successful workshops are those in which I offer guided instruction as a basis for creating a look of spontaneity. Once armed with knowledge and mastery of basic Karlyntechniques, you will be able to venture into the fascinating world of watercolor and mixed media. If you study and understand color theory, learn what each brush can do, and most importantly, develop an attitude of taking risks, you will be able to freely explore without boundaries.”

Karlyn Holman has had a studio-gallery for over 41 years and enjoys a full schedule of teaching workshops and painting in her studio. Karlyn’s watercolor paintings reflect a special kind of exuberance for her native area of Lake Superior and her travels around the world. Her paintings could be described as realism based on abstract structure. She has illustrated five children’s picture books. She has written three books on watercolor techniques, “Watercolor-The Spirit of Spontaneity”, “Watercolor Fun and Free”, and “Searching for the Artist Within”. Karlyn has taught on location in England, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Russia, Guatemala, Greece, France, Portugal, Austria, Yucatan, China, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, Bulgaria, Switzerland, Croatia, The Czech Republic, New Zealand and on three cruises in the Caribbean.

Diane Simon

I have been blessed with many excellent instructorsstarting in grade school where my oldest sister was an Art Teacher. One of my majors in high school was art and when I applied to an art school, I was not accepted.

I DID manage to take some additional courses and have been able to take many workshops and classes through the Art Center Manatee, Keeton's Office and Art Supply, Cheap Joe's,  Kings Point Art League, and others. 

I have been teaching a Beginner Watercolor Class or doing Watercolor Workshops for almost nine years to residents of Sun City Center, Treelakes Community, and several local Art Guilds or Leagues.  I am a Signature Member of the Florida  Watercolor Society, Signature Member of the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society, and member of  Kings Point Art League, Sun City Center Art League, and the Art Center Manatee.

I truly believe that IF you have a desire to paint, you can.  It is an attitude that develops with some basic guidelines and techniques.
