Develop exciting watercolor techniques while painting subjects from nature including animals, flowers, and landscapes. Bivenne demonstrates each stage of the painting process while sharing helpful tips on composition, color, value, texture, special effects, glazing, and more. Individual attention is given to each student. A friendly critique, aimed at increasing your confidence and strengthening your ability to see with an artist’s eye, ends each class.
Note: a basic ability to draw is very helpful for this class!
