Learn to paint with fluidity in watercolor. Carter will demonstrate her technique of wet, loose watercolor through demonstration.
Each day begins with a uniquely tailored lesson to inspire. She will discuss color, design, and value. The afternoon will be devoted to individual instruction and group critique.
The brilliance of color and the purity of paint application will be emphasized. She will talk about juxtaposing colors to make them vibrate. Imagery, content, and point of view are a focus.
She will also talk about marketing and using social media to build your career. Classes are informal and discussions are lively and entertaining.
Questions, curiosity, and camaraderie are a must!
