This class will experiment with watercolor techniques, creating seascapes with both flat and reflecting water scenes and active, surging seascapes. Included, will be how to handle both rocky shores and beaches.
Mary Ann Heinzen teaches by demonstration and a variety of exercises, designed to explore the delights and potentials of the watercolor. Beginners are welcome. While basics such as drawing skills, design and composition are always included; the emphasis will be on enjoying this exciting medium.
The Art Loft provides a limited amount of beginner watercolor materials for your use. However, participants are encouraged to bring their own watercolor supplies if they have some at home.
