The Joy of Painting Koi in Watercolor

Robin Poteet

New Workshop

Beginner/Intermediate; Location: VanDerVeer Studio

Saturday & Sunday September 16-17; 9am-3pm (1/2 hr lunch break)

TUITION: Members: $165; Non-members: $195

The fluid nature of watercolor is perfect for painting fish and underwater scenes. Robin will guide you through the process where very little drawing is needed and splashing on paint is encouraged in this saturated wet-into-wet technique. Students will watch their koi gradually “appear” as they lift out their background colors. Robin provides koi reference photos and backboards (student supply list provided upon registration). Day two, students will use a similar technique to paint tropical fish, sea turtles, or other underwater creatures from magazines or online references they bring to the class. This workshop is a great way to loosen up and explore the magical qualities of watercolor. Suitable for anyone with basic watercolor understanding and beyond.
