Online Workshop 9/21: Watercolor Basics II



This online workshop takes place on Wednesday, September 21st, from 5 PM -6:30 PM PST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login instructions via email before the workshop. 

*This is part two of a three-part series designed for watercolor enthusiasts; you can take each class alone or as part of the series, and you don't necessarily need to take the classes in order.*

In this workshop, we will explore the wet-on-dry technique and practice layering.  Wet-on-dry painting is essential to create a layered painting with lots of depth. By the end of class, everyone will have a finished piece and the confidence to make more! Once we've completed a meditative warm-up, we will practice our new skill by painting a cute little cactus.

1. Provide Your Own Materials.

About the instructor:

Sophie Tivona grew up wandering in gardens around the Bay Area and dreaming of flowers, rocks, soil, and water. She was raised by her single mother, who has been a professional gardener for her whole life. Sophie has always loved to create paper products and would find quiet spaces in the yard to make little treasures. She has followed a meandering path to find her way to a career in illustration, and she is overjoyed to share her love of nature through painting. Watercolor is Sophie's muse, and she loves its unpredictable, unforgiving qualities; it is her daily joy to harness the wildness of the medium and reveal its delicacy and strength.
