with Russel Whitten
Build a strong foundation in watercolor by studying color theory, mixing, and pigment application. Create the illusion of distance and composition by demonstrated technique. Students will be walked through their first painting, and then the sky is the limit! Your instructor will help you continue to build your skills and confidence throughout the class. No class 10/9.
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. $30–$50). Note: Please purchase Arches, as the quality of watercolor paper is essential for handling the techniques you will be taught in class. Bring any colors you may already have.
