Please note this listing is for instruction only, if you need supplies they will need to be purchased separately!

This online workshop takes place on Wednesday, February 1st from 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM PST via Zoom Meeting. You will receive login instructions via email before the workshop. 

*This is part two of a two-part series designed for watercolor enthusiasts; you can take each class alone or as part of the series.*

In this workshop, we will explore both wet-on-dry and wet-on-wet techniques and practice layering and blending.  Wet-on-dry painting is essential to create a layered painting with lots of depth. Wet-on-wet painting produces the much-loved spontaneous color effects that watercolor is known for. 

After a relaxing warm-up exercise, Sophie will guide the class in painting leaves - the perfect subject to practice our new skills.  Through careful observation we will capture the details of our natural subjects.  By the end of the workshop, everyone will have a thorough understanding of watercolor and have completed a lovely painting of garden leaves!

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.
