In this two-day workshop you will explore various techniques in watercolor with plenty of individual instruction and attention. Subjects covered will include creating a strong composition, using values to create a sense of light, and exploiting the richness of color. A demonstration will start each day, followed by individual painting the rest of the day. This workshop is open to all levels, but some experience with watercolor will be helpful.

Please bring photos for reference for your own paintings.
