Course Description

IN PERSON: In this hands-on course, we will proceed step-by-step to create a watercolor illustration of a fall flower using dry brush techniques. Students will learn the basics of watercolor illustration in this manner: We will begin by rendering the flower and leaves in pencil. Then, with color combinations using just six primary colors (cool and warm), we will learn methods for applying the colors to the flower and leaves. Finally, we will look at techniques for details and finishing touches. During the 10 weeks of the course, participants will be able to try out several different flowers, with the number depending on each individual's rate of progress. This course is designed for students at the beginner level. | Active Skill Learning.
