Intermediate to Advanced Watercolor

Draw the scene of your choice on watercolor paper, bring it to your first class, and begin painting right away. Learn to mix paint directly on paper to achieve soft, organic color transitions unique to watercolor. We’ll explore techniques for achieving contemporary realism and learn how to mix tri-color black. You’ll also learn to use warm and cool grays for greater depth, use charging techniques to enhance luminosity, and use masking fluid when painting.

Special Notes

  • Prerequisite: Introduction to Watercolor class or comparable experience.
  • Jump right in by bringing a drawn scene on watercolor paper to the first class.

Materials List

Students should bring preferred materials to the first class; instructor will discuss additional materials.
