VIRTUAL - White and Bright Watercolor Flowers - Old Masters Approach

Ksenia Annis

September 12
10:00 - 12:00 Central Time

$40

Watercolor is the perfect medium for painting flowers, but it can be hard to control while preserving white and light areas and defining edges. If you find painting complex floral forms with watercolor challenging, in this class we will learn old masters' approach to painting with watercolor. We will talk about the method of incorporating body color into our paintings, i.e. combining watercolors with artist gouache, as did such painters as John S. Sargent, Winslow Homer and J.M.W. Turner. We will discuss the differences and similarities between these two mediums, as well as technical aspects of painting with both. The instructor's demos will illustrate the process of working on several floral compositions. During the second part of the class students will start a painting from one of instructor's reference photos or from their own, with the instructor available to answer questions.

Note: Please note that registration will close September 10 at noon Central Time. Please register early.
