Come learn the technique of pouring diluted watercolor directly on paper! Pouring creates a wide range of colors and creates amazing blending effects. We’ll approach each painting with an emphasis on design and planning.
Through instructor demonstration, you’ll learn about masking, wetting techniques, using gravity to mix your limited palette, and preserving the transparency of your layers. You'll choose your own subject matter: still life, landscape, architectural, floral, or portrait.
