Workshop: Watercolor Loose and Bold @ Pratt Fine Arts Center, Seattle

Sat - Sun June 22 - 23rd 10am-4pm

Watercolor can be painted realistically or loosely, in this workshop we will be working loosely with the emphasis on design and composition. You will understand how to utilize color and value to punch up your paintings. We will begin by using watercolors, transparent nature, straight out of the tube to build highlights and texture.  Watercolor painting can convey emotions from portraiture to landscapes.  Bold color and mastery of the brush stroke is the key, the less strokes the better.  Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student this workshop will fit your needs..
