with Russel Whitten


Class has begun

Learn new concepts and expand on your existing skills in color theory, color blending, and application. With step-by-step instructions, you can learn how to recreate still-life themes and comprehend the utilization of positive and negative space. Work on slightly more difficult still-life and landscape subjects while learning how to create the illusion of distance and composition.

Prerequisite: Watercolor Basics

Required: 1 small tube each: cadmium yellow (light), cobalt blue, alizarin crimson, additional colors you already have.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.

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 adore his laid-back, encouraging teaching style.
