LOCATION: Zoom Webinar

Hosted by the ICAA New Classicists!

Watercolor is a wonderfully versatile and transportable medium that has been used by artists for centuries to capture everything from landscapes and cities to still lives and portraits. This free three-part webinar series will introduce beginning techniques and tools that can be easily translated to studio and plein air work. Each tutorial will start with simple warm-up exercises, then transition to a reproduction of a master watercolor.

Session III: Full Color
Wednesday, December 2, 2020
6:00pm to 7:30pm PST

Building on the lessons of the first two sessions, this third tutorial will introduce a full color palette. We will learn about typical colors in the watercolor palette and how to mix both vibrant and earthy tones. We’ll use these techniques to recreate a John Singer Sargent painting, The Grand Canal.
