This workshop is designed as an introduction to the basics of watercolor. Techniques we will explore include flat, graded and mingled washes and the nature of different pig-ments, whether transparent, staining or sedimentary. Color mixing will also be covered, as well as criteria for selecting watercolor paper and its handling. Demonstrations will be combined with hands-on exercises. No experience is required.
