Exploring watercolour technique as well as composition; this class is intended as a follow up to the class ‘From the Ground Up” or alternatively for artists with some painting experience.
The supplies are the same basic set of supplies but we will push on to more advanced applications.

Day #1 Value in your composition with various methods of light and dark contrast- Use of masking techniques and colour transitions from dark to light.

Day #2 Wet into Wet and Dry Brush combine to create great texture and gradated passages. We will try to incorporate some animal life into our piece.

Day #3 Using photos in our artwork- analysing what to use and what to throw away in keeping with the Elements and Principles of Design. We will create a composition from a photo edited in class.

Day #4 Loosening Up – starting with an abstract application as an underpainting and refining until we determine our composition. Using various techniques such as pouring, spattering, mark making, scraping and other textural methods we will experimentally work our way to a finished piece.
Be prepared to work hard and have fun!
