Painting in watercolor can seem intimidating for many artists, but it doesn’t have to be. Striking a balance between controlling the medium while allowing the paint to do what it wants to do is key to creating watercolor paintings you can be happy with. Watercolor artist Diane Swanson will demonstrate a few techniques and tricks to help participants work towards that balance in a relaxed easy setting. Participants will practice watercolor techniques to learn some of the magic of the medium, then will apply these techniques in creating their own watercolor landscape by the natural beauty of our region. Diane will work with each artist through the process, with tips on how to handle composition, color and brushwork. February’s workshop will be inspired by a woodland stream in winter. Workshop is for all artistic abilities.
