Join us for a class that will help to take your watercolor painting to the next level! In this class we will go beyond the basics of watercolor and create an image together as a class. Participants will explore color and tonal compositions inspired by nature as seen in our environment, personal home collections, and the endlessly thought and emotion-provoking art of Georgia O’Keeffe. In a combination of technique demonstration and practice, this workshop is great for anyone looking to build skills in watercolor, already maintains a watercolor practice, enjoys basking in the beauty around them, and/or is looking for a freeing and fluid experience grounded in nature.
Supplies you will need:
- A watercolor paint set. All types are welcome! Instructor will be working mostly with Winsor & Newton colors.
- Watercolor paper. All types are welcome. Recommended: Arches – cold-pressed, or rough.
- A few varied watercolor, acrylic, or ink brushes
- A sharpened pencil (HB or harder works well)
- A white gum eraser
- A few paper-towels
- A container with clean water
- Masking fluid for experimentation (not required)
