PAINTING IN WATERCOLOR

with Ed Kadunc

This class is designed for all levels in watercolor and is focused in recognizing and establishing the basic and fundamental techniques, materials, and tools of watercolor painting. Students will explore preparation and layout, and begin to examine basic procedures, such as wet on wet, wet on dry and dry on wet techniques and when to use them, in order to complete a composition. They will also explore various simple or unusual tools, as well as brushes, and practice the different effects or textures these various tools and methods are capable of, and how and when to apply them. The course will also touch on areas such as choice of color, color mixing, masking, and stamping. This class will take the mystery, and the anxiety, out of this medium and encourage new and developing watercolor artists. Material list will be provided.

COLOR MIXING IN WATERCOLOR

with Ed Kadunc

Real life colors rarely match paint tube colors, especially in nature, where shades tend to be a combination of colors interacting. Light, shadow, mood, and other variables also have an effect on which tones, shades or hues are most representative. Students will study the particular qualities and properties of various hues and develop a general understanding of which colors to mix and apply to create true and clear colors. By exploring and understanding color theory, students can develop an understanding of which color combinations best match your intended motifs. Material list will be provided.
