2-Day Watercolor Pouring  Workshop

North St Paul/ Maplewood Gladstone Center

   Thursday Nov 1st-Friday Nov. 2nd, 2018; 9am-3pm
 Experience the exciting techniques of pouring watercolours.

We’ll be using Arches 300 pound paper (22x15 in.)

on a board (24x16in) without stretching. We will complete 2 paintings one 22x15in. and the other 11x14in. I will be demonstrating 2 different scenes, but you may choose any subject or scene you wish for this process.

We will use masking fluid at the various stages of each pour to build up the values in a layering process. In the final stage we will use brushes to complete finishing details.
The techniques of watercolor pouring create a glowing luminous and fluid effect to paintings. 
Come & have fun, pouring & dropping paint while you watch the amazing work of watercolor.
