Creating Space and using Perspective (Intermediate Level)- Monday, September 13 from 1:00-
There are many methods of creating the illusion of 3-D space on a 2-D surface. We will discuss and
explore them then students will plan and start a painting that shows deep space. Several photo references may be used in the same painting.
Limited Palette Painting (Beginner Level)- Monday, September 30 from 1:00- 3:00pm
Paint a composition by only using 2 – 3 tube paints. By using a very limited selection of colors, the artist is forced to concentrate more on the tonal value (lights/ darks) of the composition. This produces a
more unified, pleasing painting. I find this a valuable lesson for new painters.
*****We will be having two watercolor classes in October. October 4th & 25th from 1:00-
3:00pm. Please call mid September to find out class topics. We will be asking class participants in
August and September for their ideas and preferences. If you have an idea for a watercolor class
subject please let us know.
