Manipulated Watercolor with Multi Media-Sept.
with Audrey McGlashan
Add dazzle, intrigue or texture to your watercolor through various techniques. Some results are happy accidents; some are calculated genius. Many successful painters add something other than pure watercolor to their paper. Learn the options and see examples of work that is beautiful and has been manipulated in some way. Understand the use of gouache, salt, texture pressing, wax resist and much more. Class time includes instruction, trial-and-experimentation, time to work on a painting and get instructor feedback. A list of student-grade watercolor paints, brushes, paper and sundries is available when you register.
