Building Depth with Watercolor: Understanding Value

Due to current health concerns, we are postponing all March workshops to a later date to be determined. Seats are still available for purchase, but please note the workshop will not be taking place at the date listed. We will reach out to you with the new date once it has been determined.

Students will create 3 small monochromatic forest paintings as they learn about the different values of color and how these variations in value can work to build the illusion of depth into a painting. Watercolor basics such as brush care and brush control will be covered, and techniques like wet into wet application, lifting, and softening/blending edges. We will also cover materials such as paint and paper and why these elements can be important in assisting you in making the art that you envision. Learning to experiment with value in your work can take your art to the next level and once you try this technique it can be carried into your work no matter which medium you enjoy. Teacher: Curtis Whitwam
