Intermediate Watercolor

with Russel Whitten



only 2 seats left

Get new ideas and build upon the techniques you have already established, including color theory, color mixing, and application. Understand the use of positive and negative space and learn to recreate still-life subjects with step-by-step demonstrations. Study how to create the illusion of distance and composition while working on slightly more complex still-life and landscape subjects.

Prerequisite: Watercolor BasicsĀ 

Required: 1 small tube each: cadmium yellow (light), cobalt blue, alizarin crimson, 1 round #10 watercolor brush; 1 inch wide flat brush, 1 drawing pencil #3B, 1 eraser, 1 light board or piece of cardboard; and two sheets of Arches watercolor paper, 140 lb. cold press (approx. $80).

Note: Please purchase Arches, as the quality of watercolor paper is essential for handling the techniques you will be taught in class. Feel free to bring any colors you may already have.

Russel Whitten, a local artist and teacher, studied at The Art Students League of New York, Heartwood College of Art, and is a member of The Ogunquit Art Association/Barn Gallery. Students love his easy, supportive style.
