BEGINNER – ADVANCED: The aim of this 2-day workshop is to learn how to break away from a coloring – in painting style and start painting watercolor fully exploiting the best quality of the medium, namely, spontaneity, freshness and fluidity with confident brush strokes. We will focus on four major building blocks of watercolor painting; shape, tonal value, color and edge quality. Strong emphasis will be placed on the importance of a pre-planning stage.
Materials from provided supply list required. Class size limited.
