A beautiful journey along a creek of water, rocks and trees will bring many exciting challenges to a watercolorist. This Masters class will explore how to capture the shimmer of light through water and create your own masterpiece. You will utilize advanced techniques to create shadows, depth and texture within your watercolor painting.
April 14 – Students will be given photo reference before the first class (or they may use their own), and will be asked to draw their subject on watercolor paper before the first class. Day one instructor will give a demo of setting up the path of light and starting the under painting. Students will begin their paintings.
