Beyond Beginner: Painting the Landscape in Watercolor with Lynn Zimmerman
This class is oriented to painters with some experience who wish to continue practicing the fundamentals and are ready to dive into new techniques.
The medium of watercolor is perfect for painting trees and landscapes. In this class, we'll explore the color, value, and basic shapes of trees.
In session one, we’ll look at trees in the landscape and use abstraction to simplify and represent trees. We'll play with some magical watercolor techniques that bring tree forms to life. And what to do with all that green? We'll talk about that, too.
In session two, we'll take a closer look at trees by moving into the details. The textures of bark, the shapes of leaves, the direction of branches are all important aspects of trees to consider when painting them. We'll also play with some watercolor pencils to add detail and bright accents to our work. SESSION TWO
Painters will be expected to provide their own paints and brushes. A list of suggestions will be provided if requested. A packet of paper and various tools needed will be provided.
Please inclue a $10 fee for shipping and handling if you need supplies mailed.
