Watercolor Painting from the Figure

Nothing can replace using the human figure as a catalyst for developing your artistic skills; it is the most complicated and familiar form we have. Watercolor is particularly well-suited to painting the figure because of its fluidity to capture gesture and expression. We will work on a different project each week, studying different techniques so that you can develop your own personal watercolor style. Come to class with enthusiasm and an open mind!
