If you have a love of expressing yourself with words as well as paint and color, then this is the class for you. We will work with various resists and simple writing tools to make writing that may or may not be legible. This asemic writing will act as a visual texture in our paintings. Our paintings will be beautiful shown on Ampersand’s Watercolor Boards.We’ll layer this writing with liquid watercolor inks to form a luscious abstract painting. Once we establish out color story and composition with theinks, we will build the tonality and shapes with smooth and creamy watercolor crayons. The class will emphasize self expression through markmaking, color and words.. Final works may or may not be legible.
