Preliminary Basic Techniques Video:
Once you sign up, you'll receive a link to a 1 hour video that will walk you through everything you need to know about all of the materials and basic techniques we'll be using in the 1 day workshop on March 2nd. If you are a beginner, you'll be able to familiarize yourself with all of the techniques, tools, and concepts at your own pace with guided practice exercises that you can access as many times as you like before the workshop. This basics video will allow us to dedicate the full 4 hours to the live workshop.
Here are some of the things we'll cover in the 1 hour preliminary basic techniques video:
*Introduction to tools and materials and setting up your painting area.
*How to set up your palette.
*How to activate and mix paint on your palette.
*Three values to paint any watercolor and how to create them.
*Introduction to various wash techniques.
*Glazing techniques that add luminosity to your work.
*Dropping in color for vibrant and energetic color mixing.
*How to use the dry-brush technique to add texture to your paintings.
High resolution digital reference downloads:
Finished painting reference download - You'll be able to use this high resolution image as a color reference and a map so you can see the direction we'll be heading with our finished painting.
Reference photographs - I'll show you how to use photographs as inspiration for paintings, and why a photograph is only a "jumping off point" for your creative imagination.
A complete list of all the materials we'll be using in this workshop, and where to find them.
Your workshop registration will be far enough in advance of the event that you can purchase your art supplies (if you need them) in plenty of time. One of the coolest things about watercolor is that you don't need much to get started. Much of what you'll need (besides paint, paper, and brush) you already have right there at home.
