About This Class

This class focuses an important concept about watercolor painting. To connect elements!

The concept of connection can be observed while we bind wet parts of the painting during a layer wash, and also determining regions with the same tones or colors that can become one only shape in the composition, even if they belong to different elements.

The class is divided in steps to maximize plainness and to explore very well the different steps of the painting.
