Creating dynamic watercolors, by increasing the contrast, achieved by saving the white paper, then contrasting with darker  values.  A sketch outlines the area of paper to reserve.  Using a variety of textures can add interest; a soft muted  background behind a  detailed subject creates the illusion of depth in the painting.  Applications of paint while controlling the amount of water, will all be demonstrated and thoroughly explained throughout the class.

The power of using complimentary colors, in watercolor painting. When placed side by side the colors each  will appear brighter and more noticeable, but neutralizing them in varying amounts will create beautiful neutrals, which also bring out the brilliance of the pure colors, while adding contrast.  Using a limited palette of transparent colors presents wonderful  glazing colors, to add luminosity to the watercolor painting.  All applications will be demonstrated and thoroughly explained.
