Introduction to Watercolor Weekend Workshop


Visual Arts Center Richmond, Virginia

Get introduced to watercolors or refresh your knowledge of the medium. We’ll explore our materials, then cover application methods like wet–on–wet, glazes, blocks, resists and lifts. We’ll also cover work area set–up, composition set–up, lost and found edges, transferring imagery and methods for controlling the paint. With an emphasis on value as a way to produce convincing compositions, class discussions will touch on color theory, light, texture, and transparency. We’ll paint from direct observation and reference photos. Expect lots of one–on–one guidance and detailed demonstration from the instructor. Students will come away with a deeper understanding of this medium and its expressive possibilities.
