$ 170  

In this class we will create faces and flowers in watercolors. I will have outlined templates for both the face and the flowers to work from. You have the option of drawing your own face but I want to make this class for all levels and focus on the watercolor techniques I use. I will be working on 300 lb hotpress watercolor paper. The technique for painting the class will start with a charcoal underpainting using loose charcoal and a brush. I then work the watercolors on top. 

Materials Fee $5 paid at beginning of class includes:

image refererences, outline templates, loose charcoal, graphite transfer paper and tracing paper
