$ 100  

I will start out demonstrating drawing a bird onto the watercolor paper.
You may also trace a bird from my collection of birds I’ll be providing in class.

Once the drawing is complete, the process of painting begins. We will start from light to dark. I will demonstrate the relationship between the darker and lighter values which begin to communicate the form and texture of our bird. The goal is to get lost in the relaxing, fluid nature of watercolor painting…remember, we are painting a WHIMSY BIRD! Once we allow the base colors to dry, with a smaller brush, we will start to paint in the darker details on the wings, legs and eye.

Every student will leave with a finished Whimsy Bird on 140lb Watercolor Paper.

Students of every experience level are welcome!
