“Watercolor Painting - Making Water Behave”
These classes will be 3 hours long for novice and intermediate watercolor painters. We will explore a variety of techniques and issues, such as basic washes, light and shadow and basic perspective. While class participants can do their own thing, we can have demonstrations for those interested in particular issues. We will also have a still-life setup for people to paint if they choose.
Equipment needed - If you have basic watercolor paints and brushes etc, you won’t need to get more. For those who have no equipment we have paper and a limited supply of brushes and beginner paints. In addition, all students need a container for water (a tall plastic or water glass will do), a HB pencil and eraser, a simple watercolor palette (a plain white dinner plate will do) and several small plastic cups like the ones that salad dressing comes in.
