No other medium can capture the translucent quality of light like watercolor. In this course you will learn how to use this inherent ability of watercolor to create beautiful transparent colors that capture the light and brilliance of the garden. Basics, that are the backbone of a successful painting such as color theory, composition, and design elements will be covered. You will learn how to work with painting from a photograph and from still life. The goal of the class is to make a difficult medium easier to learn and manage while producing beautiful paintings you will be proud of.
Participants must bring their chosen subject reference materials to class, such as photographs taken in the Garden, plants, flowers or other objects of interest. Basic knowledge of watercolor painting is required.
