This will be a really fun and informative time learning the different textures you can create with watercolors and common items (and some not so-common). Texturing is an excellent tool to add depth and interest to your paintings. Some uses include rocks, buildings, skys, oceans, flowers, "the elusive backgrounds" and many, many more you will find as you see these textures come to life! People are amazed when they touch the textured watercolor paper and find it isn’t bumpy, scratchy, grainy etc., because they are expecting to “feel” the texture. Now that’s great texturing!
Learn how to scrape, salt, plastic wrap, mask (the common items), along with new and unusual texturing techniques. This will be a busy workshop with demonstrations, personal instruction and time to paint. All texture supplies and watercolor paper will be provided. Wednesday, March 20, 9:30am to 3:30pm. Cost is $55 for residents $63 for non-residents, beginners to advanced painters welcome. You will need to bring your palette and watercolor paints, water container, paper towels, brushes and a sack lunch. Minimum 6 participants; limit 18 participants, 18 years and older.
