Sunflower in Watercolor - Keeping It Fresh
Paint Big Washes and Lift to Soften
Put It On - Lift It Off with Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser
This course uses big washes of color for great guided practice on loose backgrounds, then a little shading and a bit of lifting to soften and reveal any of those gorgeous colors that were covered up.
Suitable for beginner to intermediate level painters, and feel free to use the background color of your choice. Blue would also look great, with green at the bottom, or gold, or orange... What colors will you chose?
Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher
My story is simple.
I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.
Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).
My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.
Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!
