Building Depth with Watercolor: Color Blending

Part 2 in our 3 part watercolor series. Learn to add the element of color blending in your paintings.

We will be painting 3 small forest compositions utilizing our lesson in value and adding in the element of color blending. You will also create a small color chart to assist you in understanding how different pigments work together to create new and exciting colors. We will be, once again, creating the illusion of depth and interest in our paintings by using these new color mixing methods. This class will cover basic color theory, palette mixing, wet into wet watercolor application, wet into dry, lifting, softening edges, brush control, and basic composition planning. The paintings you create in this course will not only be fun to create, but they will help you build a new skill set for your artwork. Teacher: Curtis Whitwam
