What you'll learn in this watercolor class:

This workshop covers everything you need to know about watercolor to use it fluently in your projects: how to mix colors, use washes, work from light to dark, use reserve and  additives, and even such advanced technique as watercolor underpainting.

You will learn the science behind the watercolor fluorescent colors, learn how to lead your work, what to do to prevent and fix watercolor accidents. We will try our hands in both Classical European and Eastern watercolor styles.

By the end of the course, students will paint a portrait of a pet, a portrait of a loved one, a couple of watercolor landscapes,  plenty of small studies, and a final project of a choice.
