This four week course with instructor, Elena Maza, will deal with the basic three-primary color palette, different pigments and how they interact, how to mix all colors from three primary colors, how to apply washes, use brushstrokes and lifting to achieve the effects of light and shadow. Students will practice applying washes on paper, start mixing colors and paint several color wheels to explore color. Students will work on simple line drawings of a sprig of leaves or flowers they have drawn, transfer these onto watercolor paper and practice their techniques.
