Transparent watercolor allows for freshness in its washes and wet and dry brushwork. Historically, Egyptians ground their pigments and used water-based media on papyrus, Chinese and Japanese masters painted on silk. This analog course will incorporate experimentation with the portable, alluring medium. We will explore the meditative, relaxing quality of water-based manipulation. Breaking the unpredictable, challenging reputation of the medium, artists will improvise utilizing spontaneity. Themes will include observation, storytelling, editorial, ideation, painting on location, and personal interpretations. The application includes color theory, texture techniques, printmaking, traditional and non-traditional brush types, multiple surfaces, and other mixed media. By the end of the class artists become informative pratitioners.
