In collaboration with the national “Smithsonian Museum on Main Street Water/Ways” exhibit” Raven Hill is hosting this summer, Luke has chosen the study of “Waterways in Watercolor” for the theme of the Watercolor Workshop this year. Using Luke’s unique technique in transparent watercolor and gouache, the group will study painting landscape scenes depicting water in different forms, lakes, streams or waterfalls.“I would like to thank Raven Hill and participating artists over the years for inviting me back again for this annual two day Watercolor Workshop. Often painters are a little leery of pursuing watercolor painting, because of rumors that it is a difficult medium. In this workshop, we will prove the opposite. Watercolor is not only an interesting and educational medium, but as I usually say, it's also simply fun." Luke Buck

Luke will share his unique painting techniques combining transparent watercolor and gouache. The workshop is designed for the novice beginner, intermediate, or the more advanced & accomplished watercolor artist.  As always, this informal workshop will be a motivational, creative and inspirational session with enjoyment and camaraderie among friends and fellow artists.  Luke Buck, a native "Hoosier", grew up and studied art in Indiana. His nostalgic paintings of Americana landscapes and American wildlife show a love for life, art, and nature. Many “locals” here in northern Michigan appreciate his talents and enjoy collecting his paintings.
