Zoom - Watercolor I



This class is taught remotely over Zoom. Watercolor I will provide you with an introduction into the materials and many of the techniques used with traditional watercolor. If you have never painted or just painted a little on your own, this is a perfect class to gain some good basic skills. We also learn about the use of color, composition, how to render reflections and shadows, atmospheric perspective, and the proper use of the brush.
