Facing the Light
Would you like to loosen up with your watercolors and create more expressive and spontaneous paintings?
In this workshop I show you my fun techniques on how I like to stay loose with while creating beautiful skin tones, and expressive splashes of color.
I also demonstrate various tips on choosing a cohesive color palette to avoid creating mud.
Here are the Projects we will be doing in this class
Project one: Facing the Light
Project Two: Bonus lesson
In this bonus lesson we incorporate expressive line work with our watercolor to create variety.
There are a total of 2 lessons (1 in-depth lesson + 1 mini lesson) with 2 hours and 40 minutes of content + a printable supportive PDF.
