Mastering the technique of watercolor is unpredictable and challenging. Students will be guided through the creative process to find their self expression.  Bring photos of the subject you would like to paint. Through demos, lectures and critiques, we will work toward resolving still life, landscape or previous paintings

Eva's materials list includes:

Quality watercolors are permanent and surpass student grade or sets used in grade school. Whether you choose tube or pan sets, have a minimum of 9-12 color selection. Brushes-(need 3 or 4) 2" flat, #12 round, #8 round.  Better to buy a couple of good brushes than a full set of cheap brushes.  Paper should be 140 lb. sheets or pads, and Board- Paper should be attached to a light weight board with masking tape or clips.

matt medium paint: a big tube of white and black

We will then move on to simplifying the way you start a pastel painting, underpainting techniques, followed by significant color choices and a broad vocabulary of mark making to push a painting further. Simplify your approach, get creative, have FUN! This class will be a mix of studio and outdoor painting, and open to all levels.
