This class is a brief introduction to watercolors for beginners. No experience is necessary but it is helpful to have some drawing skills. In this hands on class, you will learn basic brush techniques, some mixing, and some basic principles of watercolor such as line, balance, value, color and composition. You will have a completed painting (or nearly so) by the end of the class. We'll even supply all the materials so you can try the technique before investing in supplies.

The challenge for this course is Transforming the Ordinary into Extraordinary! What is the Ordinary? That is your choice. You select what you LOVE and let the watercolors work the magic! Learn how to paint the effects of strong lighting and how to use tone and color in your painting. When you paint from your own photos you will feel the connection and bring your painting to life. Please select a photo with a strong light or one that we can add strong light effects. When painting light we also have beautiful shadows and contrasting darks.
You will see demonstrations in every class, throughout the class plus one-on-one help as requested. You have the choice of painting either on 140#, 300# paper. If you want to attach your paper to a cradled paper, please contact me for a short video.
All classes start with a critique. You will also be invited to join the Art Larger than Life Critiques on Zoom. There will also be an opportunity to join a Zoom with questions regarding your planned painting and discuss color and composition.

Learn how to draw/paint eyes, human or animal from someone who knows eyes...an ophthalmologist (retired)! Come with your paints, your pencils and good photographs of eyes (your photos or cut from magazines). We will learn the anatomy, how to draw an eye, first with pencil, and then put some life into them with color. I will work in watercolor, but you can choose your medium. We will start with a lesson, then a demonstration and finally set to work to improve those faces. Without a beautiful and interesting eye, a portrait suffers. Bring your own painting or drawing equipment of your choice.
