This workshop is to help us paint more than just a figure but the essence and atmosphere of the figure. We will use familiar materials in slightly different ways to loosen up and achieve more of a flow to your work. The goal is not to create a hyper-realistic painting, but rather unique, expressive, and powerful works. This workshop designed for beginners to advanced painters, will prove to be an informative and fun addition in your creative journey.

Watercolors 
Watercolor Palette

Watercolor brushes (various sizes to include 1 large brush size 8 or above)

Watercolor pad 140 lb or heavier (quality paper such as Arches is not necessary unless one wishes to use it for their final piece at the end of the day)

In this class you’ll learn tips for drawing more accurately, using values correctly and mixing colors proficiently, the cornerstones of great painting.
Instructor Mike Rooney will guide you through these subjects in a fun and informative way and you’ll see improvement in your painting immediately. 
Drawing is more about seeing what you’re drawing better, which leads to more accurate drawing. 
There’s a systematic way to figure out the values as you’re painting. So simple, you’ll say “why didn’t I think of that?”
Lastly color mixing is only a problem if you over think it. If you follow Rooney’s advice even a complete beginner could be mixing the exact color required after a few hours of instruction.
