What's Included

Instructor: Thomas Needham Learn how to capture the beauty of the summer season in transparent watercolor. In the first session, students will focus on landscapes featuring sea, surf, and sand. During Session II, creative inspiration will come from still life set-ups that include shells, driftwood, and other objects found on the beach. The class will help you acquire confidence in the application of modern watercolor techniques such as wet into wet washes, graduated washes, and the use of salt and masking fluid. Demonstrations, individual guidance, and a step-by-step approach will provide the foundation needed to achieve exciting results.
