Watercolor paintings are often technically good but still lacking spark and freshness – it’s a challenge we all face, with watercolor often becoming “the muddy medium”. This class will focus on:

• Fresh, clean color
• Intuitive negative painting
• Incorporating soft lost edges & sharp found edges • Spontaneous, sure brushwork
• Stronger composition & design

Landscape scenes will be the subject matter. Photos will be provided for students to use but they are always welcome and encouraged to paint from their own reference material. There will be demonstrations of techniques suitable for the subject, exercises, ongoing critique and lots of painting time. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within every attendee. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting!
