Carl Purcell

Intermediate Watercolor

This watercolor workshop will focus on how to see shape and create value studies leading to stronger compositions. Participants will learn how to create paintings that have a sense of unity from the very beginning. Emphasis will also be placed on designing within a format, the creation of strong areas of dominance, and how to see the patterns behind the details that usually ensnare us.

Studio Fee: $25 Sold Out
