Class Content: Participants will select a personal reference to create an original painting. A half sheet of watercolor paper, 140 lb. Cold Press, must be stretched on a Gator Board. With consultation, participants will determine composition, color limitations, paint application methods, and the layering of liquid frisket (mask) with a high-quality brass atomizer. Come with the thought of experimentation and having fun with a new technique. Teacher demonstrations and discussions about the development of personal works of art are ongoing during the class.
The class is divided into two sections with a two-week break, excellent for catching up or starting a second painting.
An extra 15 minutes are allowed at the beginning and the end of the classes to permit for set-up and clean-up time. Watercolor paper must be stretched, stapled, and dry to be ready for the first class. For instructions or answers to questions, contact Lee at email@example.com.
