The Backdoor Gallery, Fredericksburg, VA

So many people have told me they believe painting in watercolor is so hard!  Its true working in watercolor is night and day from working in oil but that means different not necessarily hard.  I want to explore with you the options for making painting in watercolor a very enjoyable adventure by providing you key concepts and tools which will prepare you to create beautiful paintings in this very versatile medium.

In this one-day workshop I will:

1. Review styles of working in watercolor (it’s just paint that is water soluble!).
Demonstrate and assist you with:

~ Controlling the water!
~ How to create dark darks without getting “muddy”
~ How to preserve your lights and what to do if you “lose” them
~ How to work with hard and soft edges
~ How to work with non-local color to energize the painting
~ How to take advantage of “watercolor magic” (aka “happy accidents”).

2. Discuss making design decisions unique to painting in watercolor and options for correcting problems that arise.
3. Send you home having practiced these concepts and providing you a game plan for applying on your own.
