Have you ever wanted to have a better understanding on how to create depth, shape and dimension in a painting
while just having fun? Then this is the class for you. Learn how to control water and color to get an effective
three-dimensional illusion on a two dimensional surface. We will work with many different techniques to create
texture on rocks, transparency in beach glass, underwater and wet rocks, realistic driftwood, sand, shells, kelp
etc. the results are simple and stunning.
For the best learning experience Birgit suggests that you use the provided sketches and reference materials to
follow along with her through the step-by-step process. As the class progresses you are then welcome to apply
those techniques to your own paintings or continue on with provided compositions as she increases the skill
level of the workshop. This class is open to all skill levels but knowledge of watercolor is helpful but beginners
are welcome and are encouraged not to be afraid.
