In this very beginner-friendly workshop, students will learn the basics of mixing and painting with professional watercolor paints. We will focus on creating a range of colors using the three primaries of red, yellow and blue, as well as learning techniques for applying paint to paper. The remainder of the class time will be spent completing a basic floral or still-life painting from your own drawing or from one copied from the instructor’s selection of drawings.
