Students will alternate between working from the live model and fruit and vegetables. Your time with the figure will focus on techniques for making fast and fluid images, with poses that range from 30 seconds to a half-hour. Then you will examine the finer details of nature, form, light and color in fresh local produce to paint simple essential colorful still lifes. Individual instruction will be given to each student. Valuable lessons from brush control to wetness and use of the paper will assist artists for whom watercolor is new or familiar. All levels from complete beginners to professionals welcome.
