“WATERCOLORS When Less Is More”
Jan 5 – Feb 23
If you’ve ever thought to try watercolors or pick up where you left off, and wish for personal attention as you paint, this class for you. At the outset we will pursue an understanding of materials and tools in order to develop strokes and washes. Using simple shapes and techniques to learn how the brush loads and carries water and pigments, we’ll be feeling the difference of “less is more”. Students will be able to complete a number of studies and paintings in this eight-week series.
Years ago I did a thesis on watercolor. I then traveled for a year outside the US. The images I brought home were watercolor only, no camera at all. This was my medium for decades. Recently my watercolor work has been on silk as well as cold-pressed Arches paper. I will include a silk demo to introduce the silk superflow, and students can opt to give it a try.
Yes, watercolor painting can be simple, fun, and elegant. Join the RAA for $10, then register for the class. Quality ingredients make all the difference. Winsor & Newton Pro, Daniel Smith, Schminke.
