This workshop is designed for the beginner, intermediate, or advanced art student who is interested in painting with watercolors. The basics will be introduced with lecture and demonstration and hands-on application. Students will learn basic watercolor strokes using flat and round brushes on paper support, information about pigments and brushes, and during the first class, practice with materials. On Saturday, students will plan a painting from sketches to be painted en plein air, if the weather permits. If not, students will paint indoors from photos taken on location.
