Overview

For the beginner or intermediate watercolorist.

This course will demonstrate how to abstract real-world inspiration into non-objective art. I'll teach you to create digital sketches using photographs as a foundation layer, then use those sketches to create vibrant, abstract watercolor paintings. This class is suited for all artist levels, though I recommend my WATER/COLOR: Tips & Techniques course first, if you have little experience with watercolor.
