Marsha and Sally green and black copy

Two painter friends
One known for expressive “painterly” landscapes, one for elegantly rendered still lifes, both passionate about color, offer their unique weekend of watercolor exploration.

You’ll explore skills including
Painting soft-edged wet-in-wet forms, building images by layering marks and shapes, painting seamless transparent washes as a meditative practice, and delineating sharply focused objects.

Approaches
From abstract to realist, from spontaneous space-shaping with a brush to methodical color-forming based on careful drawing.
