Watercolor Basics

with Russel Whitten


Class has begun

Build a strong foundation in watercolor by studying color theory, color mixing, application, 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.

See our Gallery with Russels work.
