Class Description: Join us to create a beautiful landscape in watercolor from the provided photograph. Marvel at the variety of results achieved by students each interpreting the image by employing various techniques.
Practice your skills in sketching, mixing color, understanding temperature and value, and describing depth while accepting the immediacy and fluidity of watercolor to achieve unexpected results.
We will cover basic techniques such as wet on wet, wet on dry, dry brush, glazing and color mixing by layers and more. This four-hour workshop will allow students time to paint several color and technique studies and then develop a more finished work by combining the various methods to complete a watercolor painting.
This class is for anyone from the adventurous beginner to the more advanced student who wants to explore watercolor more fully.
