Which watercolor paint should you use to create the chill of Winter’s cobalt blue snows, the fresh joy of Spring’s opera pink blossoms, Summer’s moody Prussian blue storms, and Fall’s rich quinacridone golds? Adapt color wheel “triads” to mix the maroons and yellow-golds of autumn meadows; determine if imperial purple is present in the winter landscape; and mix, mask & pour a variety of greens for textured raspberry brambles. As we explore unusual color combinations for each season, you will also learn every paint by name and pigment. Learn the special abilities of each paint to granulate, stain, cover, or make “mudless” mixes. Master texture techniques, salt effects, graduated washes, and water-resistant pours. Some previous experience with watercolor recommended. See website for materials list.
