This class is designed to paint portraits in watercolor.  Participants should have already taken Portrait Drawing by Dr. Bhatti. The focus of the class will be learning the basics of portrait painting techniques, tonality, values, layering, creating an illusion of three-dimensional qualities through light and shade. There will be demonstrations by the instructor followed by the class working on different projects in a group or through a reference photo of your choice.  During this painting class, critique session will continue ever day.  Remember, good quality art supply brings excellent results.
