Class Description

Learn to paint this beautiful and tricky medium!  You’ll learn the easy fundamental techniques,  some basic composition and basic color theory while painting a variety of scenes and subjects.  This is the class to get you started or get you on the right track. 

MATERIALS

Use this Basic Watercolor Supplies and Materials list as a guide.

We will use Rough paper for some of our projects which is not on the list.  A couple sheets is enough if you don’t already have it.

The winter landscape has mostly low-intensity colors. We’ll mix many of those from some of the brighter colors on your palette. Earth colors like Burnt and Raw Sienna, the Umbers, and Transparent Oxides are helpful.  One color I find especially useful is Quinacridone Burnt Scarlet.
