I will supply the students with a photo of the chosen subject in water or the students could work from their own photos if they have a similar scene. Students would need to come with the drawing on their watercolor paper and masked, ready to paint. I will send detailed information for these steps.
Students will learn to create reflections in water and how they change due to the light and movement of the water. Depending on the image we will use wet-on-wet, glazing, and
charging in color to create realistic looking water and reflections.
I will demo (2 or 3 times each day) the different parts of the painting and give students lots of time to paint and ask questions.
