VIBRANT WATERCOLOR PAINTING
Learn how to create an image of a crystal bowl in a step by step process! First you observe, then you paint it in order to fully understand the process. Then add the magical practices of washing, glazing and pouring techniques, as well as values, composition and color theory. All of these will be supported with enjoyable, helpful exercises to enhance your understanding and skill. Soon’s focus will be on glazing and washing techniques to create a luminous under paintings, while teaching you how to utilize light and dark values in order to capture the sparkle of crystal.
Class will begin with a group exercise based on provided reference photos and drawings. Then, while painting a demo, Soon will explain the steps and techniques she uses. No need to take notes! Soon has created step by step images and text for you. Following the painting demonstration, you will paint you own painting in order to fully understand and practice the process.
A second project will encourage you to loosen up. Soon will teach you the pouring process to paint backgrounds that beautifully frame your subject matter using your choice of an animal or other subject Soon will provide.
You are encouraged to bring current pieces to paint as well. To make the most of your time, please prepare the drawing before the workshop.
