This class will help promote confidence and control in watercolors for the beginner. We will focus on developing good compositions through negative painting, focal points and a variety of tools. Students will learn about brush strokes, washes, mixes, blending and color theory. They will use watercolors to establish color and light, to work wet-on-wet, for texture, to suggest value changes, for negative painting with discussion on composition, as well as for focus and depth.
Emphasis in this class is for individual instructional techniques to foster your ability. Students will complete several small paintings in class. A demonstration will be followed by hands on experience and personal critiques.
