Online: Continuing with Wet-on-Wet Watercolor

It is helpful to have taken my Wet-on-Wet workshop before this course but it isn’t required.

 

This is a series of classes following the Wet-on-Wet workshop with the goal to help continue to loosen your approach to the medium, feel more capable with the paints, and find out how rewarding it can be. In each of the three classes we will go over a specific technique but the real focus will be on your own paintings. Like a studio class, each student will be able to work on their own pieces and we will go over them during each session. We will continue to work wet.

 

Starting with a short demonstration of a specific technique or challenge, each 2 hour class will concentrate on helping each painter with their own work. In addition, while I have some goals for each demonstration, if there is a specific technique/approach that is not in the course description but is relevant to the students, I may switch things up to be more attuned to the class’ needs.

 

  • The first class demonstration will be on glazing/layering. Using less expensive paper we’ll work on creating new colors and images using more than one application of paint. In addition, I’ll ask for everyone to either send me their subject or a painting they’re working on so that we can discuss how to attack it.

 

  • The second class will focus using techniques to manipulate the paint once it’s on the paper (including lifting, rubbing, scratching, etc.) And again, go over the paintings in progress.

 

  • In the final class, we will talk about adding different media to the watercolors, charcoal, pastel, gouache, and acrylics for different effects. And, of course, we’ll go over the paintings in progress.
