“Watercolor Unleashed! CLEAN FRESH PAINTINGS”
Dates/Times: August 4, 18, 25, Sept 1, 2020, no class Aug 11, 1-4PM, 4 Tuesday afternoons
Watercolor paintings are often technically good but still lacking spark and freshness – it’s a challenge we all face, with watercolor often becoming “the muddy medium”. This class will focus on:
• Fresh, clean color
• Intuitive negative painting
• Incorporating soft lost edges & sharp found edges
• Spontaneous, sure brushwork
• Stronger composition & design
Flowers and scenery will be our subject matter. A photo will be provided for your use but you are always welcome and encouraged to paint from your own reference material whenever you wish.
There will be demonstrations of techniques suitable for the subject, exercises, ongoing critique and lots of painting time. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within us all.
All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting!
