In this course, we will work in water-media: transparent watercolor, gouache, casein, inks, pigments and dyes. Watercolor is the primary medium as the others are only secondary with experimentation, therefore is not necessary but they will be introduced into demonstrations. The subject matter will be half abstraction and half realistic. You will learn (1) how to mix color with the most impact (2) about composition studies in value and washes (3) how to paint relationships using counter-change and passage methods and more! (4) basic brush techniques and mark making (5) how to develop your skills while cultivating a spirit of experimentation and discovery with water-media of your choice.
