This class will focus on intermediate watercolor training, for students that have prior drawing and/or painting experience. Experience with watercolor, specifically, is not a pre-requisite. Skills taught in this class include edge control, mastering washes, negative painting, surface manipulation (salting, pouring, spattering, e.g.), stretching watercolor paper, the pros and cons of using different brands and materials, etc.
