We will cover accurate color mixing, glazing while in the process of painting a theme. I find that most students have trouble mastering loose vibrant color washes in controlled areas that retain a watercolor natural brilliance. I believe this is a key factor in doing a strong convincing watercolor. I will also have exercises designed to promote looseness but in a controlled manner. I will also introduce a variety of techniques to achieve the illusion of textural effects. We will cover some aspects of composition and brush technique and materials characteristics. We solve varieties of pictorial problems based on photos I provide.
