Watercolors: From Observation to Imagination Using Line, Shape, and Color (W23)

Instructor: Jennifer Brown


In this class you'll explore picture making in an organic way, with an emphasis on creating work that is illustrative while still conveying emotion and feeling. Practice in painting from imagination will be encouraged, along with nourishing that practice by maintaining a sketchbook of direct observations. Some previous experience with drawing and watercolor painting is encouraged. Click here for a materials list.
