We seldom learn about one of the most important aspects of painting in watercolor: designing paintings that use the white of the paper. Yet this skill can help your paintings have a better range of values, and a real “WOW” factor! When whites are prominent in a watercolor painting, the painting can have a contemporary, and often peaceful, look. Peg will show you how to plan your painting, using a small value sketch. She will discuss designing paintings by “weaving” whites into the design. She will demonstrate various ways to “save” the white of the paper. You will choose the subject matter you would like to paint. Peg will offer demonstrations, a color worksheet, and individual help. Most students will complete two small paintings during this class.

A materials list will be provided. Space will be limited in this class, so sign up early.
