Even a beginner can paint fluidly in watercolor! Used traditionally, watercolor paintings have a fluidity and transparency unrivaled by any other painting media. Often described as the "hardest medium" in which to paint, watercolor doesn't have to be intimidating.
In this self-paced class, professional watercolor artist Angela Fehr will walk you through basic techniques and supplies in watercolor, creating special effects in watercolor, and composing paintings in a loose, informal style.
Color theory, texture and composition will all be explored.
