Watercolor for beginners -Materials and secrets for fearless painting

Class contents:

This class is divided in two parts: An introduction to watercolor materials and a demonstration of a few basic watercolor techniques through the painting of a sunset scene.

If you are totally new to watercolor, by the end of this class you’ll have a list of the watercolor materials some of which you might already have at home, and those you need to get.

One of the the magic points of watercolor is the simple materials required: water, brush, pigment and paper.

Class 1 of 3 -as part of fall 2016 challenge

In this class students will learn how to make watercolor transparent washes and use them to paint a realistic apple.

A step-by-step process will guide each student, beginning by sketching an apple, transferring it to watercolor paper and using a few transparent layers to give it a three-dimensional look.

By the end of the class, students will know how to use transparent washes to paint an apple.

Beginner and experienced painters will benefit from taking this class.

If you are new to watercolor, I invite you to dive in and take the class. We all had to start somewhere and this will be as good as any starting point.   Many juicy stories begin with an apple!
