VIRTUAL: Watercolor Foundations - Essential Techniques

Jason Michael Bentley 
Saturday & Sunday
November 18 & 19
$90 members/$110 non-members

The most important part about painting with watercolor is understanding the behavior of the pigment and surface.  In this online workshop, we will explore the watercolor fundamentals and techniques often forgotten or taken for granted, such as understanding the influences of gravity and environment on paint management, and the importance of good timing for varied effects.   

This is an excellent course for beginners and experienced painters alike. This open and interactive course will spotlight the instructor’s palette, work surface, and reference in real time, so you can directly see exactly how he mixes and applies paint. The process will be step by step based with short demos so you can take time to follow along and ask questions all the way to the finished painting.

Links to a video recording of each session will be provided, should you miss a class or want to review a session. Links remain available for ​120 days.
