Exploring Figurative Watercolor in Line, Tone & Color
Monday–Friday, 1:15 pm–4:30 pm
Instructor present each day
Enrollment limited to 13 students
This class is designed for beginning and experienced artists, who want to explore painting the clothed model with multiple watercolor techniques in line, tone, limited and full color, on a variety of papers. Each class will begin with a series of quick watercolor thumbnails, varying composition, edges, color and value, followed by longer studies. Reference to master painters will supplement studio work. If desired, there will be thorough technical explanations and critiques on an individual basis. Development of personal work in a series will be encouraged.
