COMPOSITION AND DESIGN IN WATER
(currently not scheduled)
This class is for the intermediate and advanced watercolor student or
those using fluid acrylic in a watercolor manner on paper. It is geared
toward participant's individual references and will focus on designing
compositions to paint. Students will bring their own reference photos,
create a value sketch, and paint their own composition. We will discuss
elements and principles of design using their reference, so they will be
able to edit their references and create a more interesting composition
prior to painting. Individual attention will be given to each student
daily and group critiques will be offered. Demonstrations will be given
