This course will allow you to experiment, invent and create new combinations of figurative or abstract images with watercolor or acrylic wash. Using visualization, imagination and your own intuition, this course will assist you to unlock your “inventive thinking”. You will be able to develop an image that does not exist in the real world. Also, you will experiment with combinations of techniques that can be used to create works of art that appear complex, yet are easy to produce. This course is appropriate for beginners as well as more advanced students. Individual attention is given to students at various levels of ability and allows them to progress at their own pace. All the elements of painting are introduced in guided exercises. Works can be done in any scale, with watercolor on preferred watercolor paper. Flexibility and open-mindedness are essential to reach your full potential ability to paint without restriction.
