In this class, we will learn how to harness the power of water in watercolors. Often regarded as one of the most difficult concepts surrounding this medium, I will help you to breakdown the mysterious aspects of water control into concrete exercises.

In this class, we will:

• Explore various watercolor application techniques

• Practice painting flat and graded washes

• Learn how to create and prevent water blooms

• Discover how water control and value are related

• Paint a beautiful rhinoceros portrait

This class is intended for various skill levels, exploring both basic watercolor principals as well as applying those techniques to a completed painting. Beginners are welcome to simply try out the Class Exercises, but if they want something a little more challenging, they can join the more experienced painters in tackling the rhino painting for the Class Project!
