“Watercolor with a Splash”– One Day Workshop with Karen Kramer–Saturday July 16, 2022

If you love color and like experimenting with watercolor, this is the workshop for you. Start your painting by creating a ground through splashing, dripping and manipulating the paint. Then paint your own subject matter on top using overlapping images and transparencies that interact with and highlight your ground. A template will also be provided in case you prefer not to use your own subject matter. You will discover intriguing effects and a new way of looking at your subject matter. Should feel comfortable using watercolor paints. Participants need to bring their own materials. (Materials list supplied).
