Class - Beginning Watercolor


Want to create glorious, color-filled watercolor paintings?  I’ll demonstrate different techniques and show you how to mix any color you want with only 6 tubes of paint. The techniques and color mixing will be reinforced while you create a number of paintings that include flowers, landscape, still life.  You will be able to create transparent washes, intimate details, and learn how to use watercolors to create beautiful glazes.  Come on, you know you want to take this class!  No stress, I promise.
