Bold Watercolours I: Colour
Coast Collective Art Centre, Wale Road, Victoria (Colwood), BC, Canada
In this class we will explore ways to make your watercolour paintings bolder, brighter and more powerful using colour. The session will focus first on materials, and secondly on how to use colour intensity to your advantage. You will be asked to bring examples of your own work that you feel are too timid, dull or muddy, as well as reference material that you want to work from and your usual paints and papers. We will triage your palette and discuss how to make high and low intensity colours. Through classroom exercises, demos, critiques and working through a new version of your subject, you will learn how to bring more vibrancy to your work. 10 am to 4 pm. See the Coast Collective website for a supply list.
