Watercolor is gentle and unburdened. We begin with awe and wonder. painting the landscape and building a strong composition. Bring in your photos of places that excite you, and I will help you compose and show you painting techniques.

Bring watercolor supplies you have on hand to the first class and I will provide a supply list for you to consider purchasing, including a sketchbook, paints, two brushes, and especially 140 lb Arches watercolor paper (I will have 22″ x 30″ sheets available for sale at $6.00 each).

The human figure/portrait is alluring and captivating. Painting the figure is much like painting the landscape — finding the forms, dark value flow, and gestures which bring the figure to life in story form. Students in this class will need some drawing and painting skills, however I will show proportions and gesture.

Bring watercolor supplies, #2 pencils, tracing paper, sketchbook, and a mindset to have fun. I will have 140 lb Arches watercolor paper available to purchase for $6.00 per sheet (22″ x 30″). There will be handouts, videos and demonstrations. Bring a sack lunch if you wish.
