Light & Dark Relationships in Watercolor (Feb. 2018)

Have people told you that watercolor is a difficult medium? Let's dispel that myth as you explore the attributes of watercolor paints with Stacy Egan. 'Value' helps us visually determine one shape from another. It also describes the lightness or darkness of a color relative to its surroundings. In this class, you will work through a series of exercises specific to watercolor that will help you control your lights and darks.

Artwork by Stacy Egan

Learn how to maintain light areas with masking techniques, preserve the paper's white, and handle highlights. Create luscious darks by slowly building up layers, and find out how to control the water in your brush. You will then apply these techniques to a more significant piece.
