VIRTUAL CLASS – Watercolor Unleashed: Rock Garden with Flowers with Julie Gilbert Pollard
In this virtual class, students will learn to paint rocks with flowers growing in the crevices. Rocks and flowers will be studied separately before putting them together in a painting.
Lessons will focus on learning how to make rocks look hard and how to make flowers look soft and translucent. Techniques taught in this class will include creating a “Painterly Realism,” a loose approach to painting rather than “copying” a photo. Students will practice creating a composition, drawing, simplified color theory using “color as value.” In addition students will enjoy negative-painting lessons and exercises.
There will be demos and instruction at all levels, with critique. Reference photos will be supplied, or students may use their own. Class time will be structured, yet open enough to accommodate the artistic spirit within us all. All levels are welcome and encouraged to attend. The only prerequisite is an attitude of joy in the act of painting!
