About This Class


Hello and welcome to the first in my planned series of classes Get to Know your Watercolors! In this class I'll be showing you how to test your watercolor paints for transparency. Many watercolor artists prefer transparent and semi-transparent paints because they can help you create more luminous, layered paintings. Transparent watercolors are key to glazing and layering, which are essential watercolor techniques. Testing your new watercolor paints for transparency will help you understand them better so you can achieve the results you want in your paintings. Join me to learn how to quickly and easily test your watercolor paints for transparency!
