9:30 – 4:00pm
This special 2 day workshop will focus on how to move shapes in colors and values in your painting to establish movement and balance in your watercolor. We are going to learn how these principles of painting apply to painting people and landscapes. The workshop will also include working with different levels of moisture and how to glaze colors. How to mix colors to get strong colors and to avoid and control muddy colors. There will be 6 - 7 small demos throughout the day with a lot of technique on brush handling.
