Colors are like jewels. Brushes can dance on the surface of the paper making them glow with just paint and water. Watercolor is a great way to express yourself with a medium that it is easy clean up and very rewarding. We will talk about preparation prior to paint, like sketches, colors, values, composition and design. The class will address wet on wet, wet on dry, dry brush, washes, glazes, soft and hard edges techniques.
