Join local artist Tonja Wilcox in this cool watercolor workshop focused on the night sky. Tonja will show you how to use the wet-on-wet technique to blend colors to make your choice of sky: calm, stormy, or colorful. Then you’ll learn how to add stars, constellations, and dark trees to make an interesting night sky painting.
No drawing skills needed. Good for beginners and intermediate level painters. You can pick your colors and personalize to your heart’s content!
Watercolor paint generally has a translucent quality, which is great for ethereal or emotive effects. Blending colors is fun, and you can also layer imagery so that what is underneath shows through. Watercolors are generally more affordable than some other paint mediums and are lightweight for easy transporting. This workshop will arm you with the tips & tricks to maximize your watercolor experience.
