$175, 4 weeks, Saturdays, 2-5 pm, 13 Feb – 6 Mar 2021
Experience level: This course is most suitable for those who have at least completed a beginner course similar to Watercolor Jumpstart.
NOTE: Techniques taught in this course REQUIRE STRETCHING YOUR PAPER!!! Please do not enroll in this course if you are unwilling or unable to stretch your paper. The techniques in this course are intended for for skies in larger paintings. Projects should be done at quarter-sheet size (11×15″) or larger. If you prefer to work smaller or on unstretched paper, please consider the Small Skies Clinics instead.
This is it!—the course that spawned Project 1 and 2 of my online Watercolor Skies and Clouds workshop. It was originally taught as a weekend workshop, but that just seems like too much “Zooming” all at once, so I’ve taken the same 12 hours of class time and spread them out in 3-hour weekly sessions over 4 weeks. (This is probably a better way to do it, anyway, too we don’t have to give our blow dryers such a workout!)
You may work through the example projects or I will assist you with planning projects of your own that rely upon the same skills. Because these techniques require time for successive washes to dry, this is a great opportunity to work on several paintings at the same time and create series!
This interactive course is for those who would like help and coaching while through this challenging material and adapting it to paintings of your own design. (Of course, the free materials remain available for self-study if the timing of the course doesn’t work for you, or you can’t afford it at this time.)
Because of the time required for layers in larger paintings to dry, you will want to schedule at least 3-6 hours each week outside of class meetings to continue work on your projects.
Minimum enrollment: 4
