Painting with Watecolors Is So Hard/Fun?: Steve Griggs
“Painting with watercolor is so haarrrd!” We hear it all the time. Even some experienced painters of oil and acrylics shy away from watercolor because of the complexity of painting with this medium.
There is no denying watercolors are free-spirited and maybe even a little bit mischievous but, that is what makes them so interesting! By learning the fundamentals of painting with watercolor and getting to know and understand their non-conforming nature, you can start to work with them to create expressive and free paintings. Before you know it, you’ll be saying, “Painting with watercolors is so fun!”
During this class, beginner and intermediate level painters are invited to try out a variety of watercolor painting strategies and techniques to create loose, intuitive, free, and spontaneous effects. You will learn about color mixing, glazes, composition, drying time, thickness, and edges while painting short, warm-up sketches as well as finished landscape or cityscape paintings.
Plan to experiment, laugh, move out of your comfort zone, and be amazed at the beautiful paintings you create!
