Water Reflections in Watercolors
5 - 9 pm
Water and water reflections have always been a fascinating subject for painters, photographers, and observers. In this class students will learn how to capture the beauty of water reflections with watercolors. First, students will explore the anatomy of waves and how the appearance of waves changes within the context of linear perspective. Then, students will look at how waves interact with light, and finally how reflections interact with the entire composition. The wet in wet approach will mostly be used in this class.
Note*: 100% cotton paper is highly recommended.
