DescriptionThis class is for the beginner to intermediate level watercolor student who is interested in taking his/her painting skills to the next level. Learning the water cycle, wet-in-wet, glazing and layering watercolor techniques will add to the students’ knowledge of watercolor painting. Instructor demonstrates and will discuss the many aspects of design and composition that make a watercolor appear professional. Creative challenges in the form of quick studies will teach the students when and how to use negative space, how to lift out color and how to enhance a center of interest, how to use linear and aerial perspectives to add depth to your painting. During class, students will begin to find their own “painting style” with lessons on creativity.
