In this workshop, learners will learn about watercolor supplies and materials and get started right away with experimenting with their tools. Learners will create a “knowledge page” where they can test out each technique and use it as inspiration as they continue their watercolor journey outside of class. The first steps will include learning to load the brush, control our water, and mixing colors. We will then continue with techniques like wet on dry, wet on wet, a wash, scumbling, lifting, splatter, layering, dry brushing, charging and blending, adding details, and creating blooms. As we work through these techniques, we will also create a gentle bird painting.
