Enrol in Watercolour Painting - Big Skies, Clouds & Landscapes

Course Code: ARTS1665

Interpret the drama and beauty of the Ontario landscape and dynamic skies while challenging yourself to take risks and explore new territory. Flat, graded and variegated washes and drybrush techniques will be reviewed and built upon. Learn methods of painting on hot and cold pressed paper with different moisture content (wet on: dry, damp and wet) to achieve various edges and dramatic effects. With colour theory central to instruction, learn to mix a variety of intermediates and neutrals from pure primaries, unifying your work. Discover pigment interactions based on the physical properties of paper and paint. Study will include depicting different cloud formations and how light, water content and wind define their properties. Proportion and composition will be discussed to inform pleasing design choices. Value, contrast and aerial perspective will be considered to achieve an illusion of pictorial depth. Instruction will include daily demonstrations.
