Introduction to Watercolor

Get introduced to watercolors or refresh your knowledge of the medium. We’ll explore our materials, then cover application methods like wet-on-wet, glazes, blocks, resists and lifts. We’ll also cover work area set-up, composition set-up, lost and found edges, transferring imagery, and methods for controlling the paint. With an emphasis on value as a way to produce convincing compositions, class discussions will touch on color theory, light, texture, and transparency. We’ll paint from direct observation and reference photos. Expect lots of one-on-one guidance and detailed demonstration from the instructor. Students will come away with a deeper understanding of this medium and its expressive possibilities.
