Knowing what color paints to use can be the key to a successful watercolor painting. We will look at the basic colors of an artist’s palette and how they can be mixed in various ways to create a variety of different tones and hues. Expanding the basic watercolor palette will be a focus of this course.
Zoom invitations will include an attachment of a subject to be printed out for class each week. For the first class we will be using a palette, pad of watercolor paper, pencil and eraser, a few round brushes between number 2 and 10 and a flat brush any size, a watercolor pan set of about 10 colors or tubes of the primary colors, a jar of water and paper towels.
