VA126 - Watercolor Portraits

Mindy Lacefield
9:00 - 4:30
Thursday October 5

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

Join me as we create childlike watercolor portraits. I love this media because it is so portable and such a way to let go and have fun with the painting process. Watercolor is such a different medium than acrylic and if you are comfortable using acrylics, I’ll show you a non-intimidating way to work with watercolor in your creative practice. Before long, you’ll be toting your watercolors around and be able to get creative anywhere. This class is all about fun, whimsy, and embracing our inner child!

supply list to bring:
Prima watercolor sets: pastel dreams, decadent pies, and shimmering lights - bring any sets you like or have on hand. These are the ones I love.
watercolor brushes - size 2, 4, and 6 (I like da vinci quills but any rounds will also work)
watercolor 9x12 pad
Spray bottle
Small Jar for water

Stabilo graphite pencil
Sharpie paint pen
Viva paper towels
