Watercolor Painting with Greater Confidence - All Levels (Online)


Adult Classes and Activities / Create -
Fall 2020

Learn to paint in watercolor with greater freedom as Paul demonstrates how to simplify your subject while creating the illusion of complexity. He does this by allowing watercolor to do what it is meant to do. In these sessions, we will move from easy to more difficult subjects. The emphasis will be on learning to see and paint values (contrasts of light, middle and dark values); designing a strong composition; and learning to use color to create expressive emotion, even in the most ordinary of subjects. We will paint quick little value sketches so we can "see our way" to the finished painting, then paint these scenes in color. All levels are welcome.

Our instructor invites you to turn on your video and audio at the beginning (optional). This will allow you to connect with other like-minded participants in a group conversation and allow him to observe and assist in your progress as you paint.
