Workshop Description 

Explore a range of strategies for painting with watercolor. Exercises will include mixing and layering washes, using a full value scale from light and dark, adjusting color, and working wet-in-wet. Students will also be encouraged to playfully explore the many surprises of watercolor as we build a working understanding of the medium. Class will work primarily from observation (still life, landscape and the model). Experienced students and those new to watercolor are welcome.
