Students will learn the fundamentals, from controlling how much water is in their brush to painting with negative space. We will begin with basic exercises, and then move to painting objects from life. There will be no pencil drawings in this class; instead, the focus will be on learning various techniques to build a painting without relying on a drawing. While we will be working from still life setups, the techniques in this class are applicable to any subject matter. This class is open to absolute beginners, as well as more experienced watercolorists who want to strengthen their fundamentals - the only requirement is that you have some experience drawing from life.
