Watercolor: Still Life, Model, Life

Kamilla Talbot

Tuesdays
4pm - 7pm

Making watercolors from observation, we will turn our perception into images. Students will work from the still life and from the model. Formal elements of painting such as composition, tone, and color will be pursued while maintaining an appreciation for the immediacy and fluidity of watercolor. Individual attention and group critiques will help each student develop their own voice. All levels are welcome, although prior drawing experience is helpful.
