Beginning Watercolor Painting is perfect if you are new to watercolor painting or wanting time and space to refresh your practice. Through demonstrations and observation we will explore composition, color, and a wide variety of watercolor techniques. We will look to artists working in a variety of styles for inspiration and ideas for experimentation. Subjects may include landscape, still life, and the figure. We will discuss materials, pallet set up, paper, and how to get from sketch to painting. Beginning Watercolor Painting will give student the tools and techniques to dive into their own work.
