In introduction to watercolor, you will not only learn about color and color mixing, but also about all basic watercolor techniques to make a beautiful watercolor painting. We will be working with flat and round brushes, creating even and graded washes, practicing dry brush, practicing wet in dry and wet in wet painting, letting colors mix on the paper, painting simple shapes, and more. Finally, we will take all the technique we have learned and make a composition and final watercolor painting.
