Watercolor for Beginners: Lavender Fields

Monday – Wednesday, August 27 – 29 / 1:30 – 4:30 pm

This three-session course will focus on the importance of value and depth in landscape paintings. The subject of lavender fields will first be explored in a monochromatic painting, focusing on value as well as wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry watercolor techniques. In the following sessions students will explore color mixing and will apply the value lessons learned from monochromatic study to full color spectrum paintings.
