About This Class

This is a class about synthesize the subject in a watercolor painting. When one paints with a big paintbrush in a small format, the unnecessary details are left apart and all the areas of the painting has to be solved with a few brushstrokes. This is a very good training for all those who enjoy the watercolor technique, but it can also be a useful test for a bigger work. The videos explore different lights: diffuse lights, hard lights, a back lighted scene and more.
