Watercolor in Dry Brush

Wildlife & Natures Elements

Instructor – Alan R. Young

Explore the technique of painting by subtraction, the lifting of watercolor paint to create highlights. Students will learn the layering process for hard and receding shadows. Each step is followed by a drying period and students are encouraged to work on multiple, simultaneous projects. Using various tools, such as sandpaper and hard edges, some students may try their hand at pre-texturing the watercolor paper for interesting effects found in nature. For more advanced students, examples will be available for the Chiaroscuro effect painting (total contrast). Dry Brush Watercolor, unlike traditional Watercolor, is designed for better control. This is a beginner’s class.

This is a two-day workshop

TIME: 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM each day.
