watercolor with Spencer Meagher

This weekly virtual class will focus not only on the fundamentals of watercolor painting, but on good design as well. We will talk about how to simplify your composition by editing out unwanted clutter, focusing on large shapes and abbreviated values.

We will then transition our focus to various components and aspects of painting watercolors, i.e. differences in brushes, papers, paint quality, as well as brush manipulation, washes, splattering, dropping and dry brushing. When, where, and how to appropriately use each tool and technique.

Be prepared to complete one painting over the course of each three-hour virtual session. Subjects include Harbors, Boats, and Small Town Rural Americana.

Soft-spoken in his critical analysis of each student's work, Spencer builds student confidence by pointing out the strengths and weaknesses in each piece and by offering suggestions for improvement.

Bring your coffee and a good attitude and let's have fun exploring this innovative approach to teaching painting!
