Workshop Overview

Immerse yourself in discovering the beautiful way watercolor uniquely captures the luminous glow of sunlight in this two-day workshop. Guided by step-by-step instruction, learn how watercolor delightfully mingles together in this wet in wet method to describe the transparent glow on our subject of grapes. Bring your subject to life by crafting the illusion of light on surrounding leaves by painting a grisaille foundation followed by layers of various yellow and green washes. Complete your practice painting with the magical technique of wispy spider webs, adding a touch of magic to your artistic endeavors.
