Big Brush Watercolor Painting Workshop
Instructor: Mary Sundstrom
Learn to paint watercolor in a bold and expressive way. We get out the big brushes (Japanese Hake brushes), palettes and masking fluid to make simply composed, richly colored pieces. For some this will come naturally, for others it could be the leap of faith you need. This class is for all levels but especially those that have considered watercolor painting too fussy and hard. Bring two 22”x 30” pieces of cold press watercolor paper to class, one tube each of red, yellow and blue paint and a bag lunch. All other supplies will be provided.
