Watercolor Painting 1F19

Two teachers take different approaches to watercolor. Both teach color theory and mixing, brushwork techniques, how to control paint and water and choose paper and brushes, achieving a feel for the medium to achieve a range of effects. Work from still lifes, practice gesture and composition, realistic representation and abstract design. With Sean, the emphasis is given to accurate color mixing and controlled paint application. With Jeanne, add more experimentation, spraying, splattering and pouring. For both new and continuing students.

Limit 8 students
