Fearless Watercolors – Only one spot left!
GIVEN BY: JAN GUARINO
I was once you… Struggling to become a better watercolorist and felt I was missing many of the basics needed to be excel. Having taught watercolors for the past 15 years I know what you need and can help you build your painting skills with specific techniques, my clear process to putting paint and water to paper will help you more successfully express your passion for this medium. I’ll teach you in a way that emulates what I needed as a student and didn’t get. This Basics Workshop takes many pieces and pulls them together in this 3-evening workshop. Learn the correct brush strokes, understand color wheel, avoid muddy results, saving and correcting whites and much more. The outcome will be that you become empowered by clear and innovative ideas. You already have the passion and desire, combined with my suggestions ~ you can become a more confident water colorist. All it takes is you and practice!
