    JULY MONTHLY PAINT-IN: Animals in Watercolor with Joanie Hughes

    Class:  9:30-3:00 on July 20, 2019

    Painting animals can be very rewarding.  Come join longtime teacher and Elite Signature member Joanie Hughes as she guides us on animal watercolors.   Animals are uninhibited about how they look and are delighted to pose for the camera.  In this Paint-in, we will capture the personality of domestic animals.  Focusing on expressive eyes, fur, feathers and whiskers, we will complete several finished animal paintings. You may bring favorite photos of your pet.

    SEPTEMBER MONTHLY PAINT-IN: Seeing the Light with Mark Stewart

    Class:  9:30-3:00 on September 21, 2019

    Mark Stewart, a WAS-H signature elite member, will encourage and guide the group as we study and capture the light in a watercolor painting.

    Getting the lighting right involves color selection, understanding values, and composition...just about every skill set necessary to make a good painting.  We will work together using a couple of nature subject prompts to understand light, the subject, and how to we can capture it in a painting.  

    Along with your regular painting supplies, please bring at least 2 sheets of good quality watercolor paper (I prefer 140 pound arches cold press), and a sketch book.  I will be working on two sheets of 11"x15" Arches paper and I suggest that participants use approximately the same sized paper.

    Bring a sack lunch, sweater/light jacket (in case the room temp is cool).  We’ll have snacks and coffee!
