Learning from the Masters in Watercolor
Join us as we study the work of watercolor masters, such as: JMW Turner, Georgia O'Keefe, Edward Hopper, John Singer Sargent, and Andrew Wyeth. Each week, we will look at the work of an artist, discuss their techniques and approaches to watercolor, and then do a lesson based on their work. You choose works that inspire you, and either copy them or use the artist's techniques to enrich painting of your own images. You will be surprised what you can learn, and how it helps your own paintings!

Do your watercolor paintings need something more? Join me in this new course designed to give your creative journey a jumpstart. I will demonstrate fresh new ways to start a painting, to save paintings you thought were lost, and to bring paintings to a higher level of finish. I will demonstrate how to use products to enhance or correct
your paintings, such as watercolor mediums, gouache, and acrylics. We will also try working on different types of paper. An emphasis will be placed on planning through design, doing value sketches, and planning your color palette for each painting. Some watercolor mediums will be provided.
