Using watercolor and portions of your favorite photographs, we will paint portraits, pets or landscapes based on what is contained in the photograph. Learn how to paint outside the box! We will capture the essence of your photos by embellishing them with watercolor. This fun technique helps you to develop your artistic eye with color and value. Shapes and figures can be exaggerated to make whimsical and delightful paintings. Are you intimidated by drawing people or animals? Don't worry - the photo does the hard part for you!

Students will learn how to use part of a photograph, attach it to watercolor paper and use the information provide in the photograph to create fun and whimsical watercolor paintings.

** (From above...) This workshop is fun for all levels of watercolor painters. I welcome new beginner watercolor enthusiasts as well as more advanced students to participate in all my classes. Whether you consider yourself to be a new or advanced painter, we all start at the beginning and will become better and better painters the more we paint. As we learn new and exciting techniques, we begin to get a feel of how the water interacts with the paint and the paper. Desire and passion are what are needed to be successful watercolor painters, with artistic talent being a bonus! I will have fun projects for all levels and each person will be working at their level. I always tell my students, "Put miles on your brushes!". This is a great workshop for learning how to develop paintings using color, shapes and value.
