Watercolor Basics Part 2 - Wednesday, 2/1 at 5:30PM PT


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.
