Still Life in Watercolor

Working from specific and historically themed still life setups each week, students will learn scale, composition, and space. Each week students will be introduced to a new topic in still life painting, focusing on the historical precedents of the genre. What do de Heem and Diebenkorn have in common? How do they differ? And more importantly, how can the investigation of their paintings become a useful tool in your own studio practice? All levels are welcome.

Explore a range of watercolor and gouache techniques, including wet-into-wet, masking, and resists.
