Watercolor Basics - Spring

with Russel Whitten


Build a strong foundation in watercolor by studying color theory, color mixing, application and how to create the illusion of distance and composition. Students will be walked through their first painting, then the sky is the limit! The instructor will be there to help you continue to build your skills and confidence.
