What you’ll learn in this workshop:
Day 1 – “The water’s great – dive right in!” – The most important element of watercolor is … water! It’s the key to loose flowing washes, subtle minglings and for maintaining transparency. We’ll learn to use and manage it to best advantage. Important techniques – Wet-into-wet, dry-into-wet and edge creation – will be covered.
Day 2 – “Think ahead” – Watercolor is not easily fixed, so planning for success is imperative. We’ll cover simple principles for powerful designs and explore ways to create dynamic shapes, while learn to employing color and value for maximum effect.
Day 3 – “Composition is King” – Creating any painting, of any subject, is actually an exercise in arranging design elements on our paper in a powerful, pleasing way. We’ll cover simple composition arrangements that result in strong paintings every time.
By the end of the three days, you’ll have all the tools needed to successfully paint in watercolor.
