Mountains are an integral part of many landscapes. Join this class to capture a variety of mountains in watercolor. Students will explore the colors and techniques suitable for painting distant mountains with minimum details as well as more elaborate peaks closer to the viewer’s eye. We will be using wet in wet, wet on dry, as well as lifting along with various approaches to generate texture. 100% cotton paper is highly recommended for wet in wet approach.
