Saturday, October 23, 2021
11:00am - 4:30pm
The workshop will impart the Instructor’s method of using dry brush watercolor to paint a Catalpa Leaf. The students will be provided with a photograph and a line drawing of the subject. The class will meet online using Zoom, where we will discuss the dry brush technique and how to use it for this subject. Participants will paint throughout the day and the Instructor will offer individual help to each student as they progress with their paintings. Students will send photos of their work in progress to the instructor via text. Live demonstrations and a pre-recorded video will reinforce the learning experience. Some experience with watercolor is recommended.
