Working with moist watercolor on Arches cold-pressed paper, Liza will guide you in the exploratory process of using brush and color to release the image that waits within the washes. Discover shape and form by working in the space behind the emerging image. Initial watercolor washes begin the process. Following your intuition you’ll spend the day uncovering clues as you add opaque and transparent layers. The effect can be poetic and mysterious, or very precise.
Watercolor has a fearsome reputation as a difficult medium. Through a series of introductory exercises we’ll discover how easy it is to manipulate! We’ll cover basic techniques and concepts such as color blending, hard and soft edges, layered washes, dry brushing and color lifting.
