    Creating Dynamic Watercolors

    Bringing the Everyday to Life with

    Brienne M Brown

    Painting in watercolor is very exciting, but can also be challenging.  During this 4-Day workshop, Brienne will demonstrate and explain her process in watercolor.  While sharing her love for the medium, she will put particular emphasis on getting your values correct and connecting shapes in order to create strong and dynamic watercolor paintings.  During the first couple of days, Brienne will teach you how to use interesting value patterns to compose strong paintings.  She will then discuss how she uses color to unify and set the mood of a painting.  Throughout the workshop, Brienne will share useful training tools and tips to help you take your paintings to the next level.  For the final day, Brienne will demonstrate methods for framing watercolors without glass.  No experience with watercolor painting is necessary, but some drawing experience is recommended. Time permitting, brushstrokes

    You will have access to recorded video of the LIVE Zoom Sessions so you can review the instruction, demonstrations, and feedback for 30-days after the workshop.
