The PROCESS of building a good watercolor painting is with strong composition and clear sense of light and aa strong focal point.  Tim will explain his ‘grisaille’ value technique and how to ‘deconstruct’ a painting with thrown water, spatters, runs and blooms.    This is Not a class about duplicating a research photo but using that as a starting point to explore the painting itself.   Tim will discuss preparing a value sketch of your research, correct linear perspective and the range of counter-points to build a beautiful watercolor painting.   Tim will be doing continuous demonstrations and offer each student individual attention and instruction.
