OSHR 1767 - Dramatic Effects in Watercolor

  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

For those who want to learn some of the fundamental elements needed to produce a dramatic painting, this is the class for you! Join us as we explore the use of negative shapes in watercolor painting. Find out how to execute lost edges, soft edges, and blending effectively. Getting a grip on good brushwork is a learned skill that can be taught. In order for edgework to be varied (lost, softened, blended, or hard-edged) you need to find a comfort zone with your brushwork.

Class participants need to have some previous experience with watercolor
