In this workshop you’ll learn the process for painting skies from simple to complex. You’ll also find out why I believe that watercolor is the easiest medium there is because all you have to do is paint half a painting. You have a painting partner and the biggest cause for failure is trying to do too much and not giving your partner a chance to paint.
We will cover wet-in-wet, glazing, wet-over-dry, lifting and blotting, lo-tek masking, consistency of pigment and how to go back and fix things through re-wetting without using a brush.
I think you’ll be amazed at the illusion of detail you’ll be able to achieve without actually painting the detail. Suggesting, and letting watercolor paint itself is the key to a successful painting no matter what the subject is.
