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 is the key to loose flowing washes, subtle color mixtures and to create beautiful flowing 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. Learn simple principles for powerful designs. With a tricky medium like watercolor, process is important. You’ll learn to handle the techniques and And 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 shapes on our paper in a powerful, pleasing way. We’ll cover simple composition arrangements that result in strong paintings every time.
