Intuitive Silhouettes in Watercolor Workshop

  • Femme Fatale Pop Up Store 4620 Wisconsin Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20016 United States (map)

The fluid nature of watercolor invites us to paint in a free and suggestive manner rather than be overwhelmed by detail. In this workshop, learn how to paint a loose, full-body silhouette intuitively in watercolor. We will begin by looking at the art of several female watercolor painters who explore and celebrate the female form in their work. Techniques, such as how to make a wash, control the paint, and make corrections, will all be covered. We will also discuss how and when to assert tighter control over the paint and when to let it go to facilitate the beautiful bleeds for which watercolor is so well known. While we work, we will also be exploring color and experiencing the various personalities inherent in each of the pigments.

All you need to bring is your intuitive sense of color -- no experience necessary!

All supplies will be provided by the instructor. 10 spaces.

$40 Sunday June 3rd 1:30 – 4:00PM, Sign-up in advance required (in my shop)
