DescriptionMaterials List
This class is a continuation of week one of “Watercolor painting for people with no time or talent.” It is not for a beginning student with no experience painting with watercolor. It could also be for those who have had to take a break from their painting and want to get back up to speed. You should be familiar with how to do washes, dry brushing, and painting wet into wet. The goal of this class will be to introduce the watercolor painter to the basics of Alaska landscape painting. Subject matter included will be composition, value studies, working from photos, the uses of color, value and edges to create the illusion of depth in a painting. We will work on how to simplify a scene to tell the “story” so that the viewer may better interpret your painting.
