Students receive individual guidance and demos of various techniques. Basic building blocks: Setting up your palette. Stretching watercolor paper. Playing with texture. Staining, transparent and opaque pigments. Mixing colors. Washes and gradations. Painting from life, photos or imagination. Design and composition. Color temperature and value.
