During this class we focus on creating complete paintings.
Find your own reference material. What excites you? Do you want to copy a painting, paint an image from a magazine, use your own photographs as reference material, paint something out of your head?
The techniques below will be ongoing throughout.
We will continue to explore the relationship between paint and water, as this is the foundation of watercolor. We'll practice just how wet (or dry) paper needs to be to achieve hard lines, soft lines, no lines.
