About This Class

0116f35e

This bite size class is created to give you a challenge and put your brushes and techniques to paper, create something fun. The 5 minute workout is a simple way to hone your skills as a watercolorist and get used to the speed and "quickness" of watercolor.

This encourages a loose style, makes you focus on your brush strokes, line quality, color studies etc. And it may seem like it is just 5 minutes, but you will learn a lot about what comes naturally to you and how you can better your skills and develop ideas for future paintings.

So have fun while at it. Don't ponder so much about what the end result will be. Enjoy watercolor for what they are and splash some color!

Here are the supplies you will need:

- Watercolor Paper (140 lb cold pressed watercolor paper)

- Watercolor (whether in tubes, pans or liquid watercolor - any will do)

- 1 or 2 watercolor brushes of your choice

- Jars of water for cool and warm colors

- Paper towel - optional
