What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

This course examines the language and techniques of watercolor painting from the figure. Students will paint using a variety of strategies derived from current and historical practice. 

As a medium that allows only a few corrections, the basis of watercolor must be understood. Students will learn the medium's behavior on wet and dry paper and how to cause accidents without losing control, allowing the medium to express itself and create images that are alive. A variety of topics covered include: life drawing & painting, nudes & portrait, flesh tones, reserving white from the paper, volume and color theory. The purpose is to build three-dimensionality from a flat surface, providing life to the human form.

Students will learn from cast figures, nudes from old masters paintings, self-portraits, and zoom live models. We will be working through a series of activities, beginning with a series of quick gestural studies and progressing to longer paintings. There will be daily lectures, demonstrations, exercises, and one-on-one guidance to find each student's style.The goal is to win the confidence and obtain definitive results in this unforgiven technique.

After class, students will receive an exclusive video recording of the demonstrations.

It was a difficult experience. Marcelo is a wonderful Artist however the virtual experience was difficult and hard to navigate. I want to give him credit for trying to handle it, but/and perhaps it was a little fast with not a lot of hands on help individually. He stated he had a lot of students (80 I think he said). And maybe that’s too many optimally. I’m an older student with strong drawing skills but found myself floundering.

The teacher was excellent; he was very patient and extremely talented and knew his subject matter very well. He was very supportive and very helpful and gave all of us individual attention and guidance.
