“POURED WATERCOLOR”

Forgo the brush and experiment with the process of pouring watercolor to produce looser paintings with unique results.  Artist Cheri Isgreen will teach pigment rules and pouring techniques, as well as color theory, composition, and strategies for successful painting. Learn how pouring watercolors in a series of glazes allows depth of color to develop while preserving underlying layers and enhancing luminosity. Experience how this technique fosters a wide range of spontaneous colors while maintaining the harmony of a limited palette. All levels of painters are welcome, including first-time watercolorists.
