GTCC Summer Institute 2019
Watercolor Painting: Imaginary/Fantasy Landscapes and Skyscapes
In this course students will learn how to paint imaginary/fantasy landscapes using watercolor paints. Students will learn the basic skills and the principles of color theory, and apply them in order to create a variety of effects rendered in landscape and skyscape painting. The course is designed to teach absolute beginners how to draw and paint with enough confidence to continue on their own, but offers instruction and techniques that students who have already experimented with watercolor may find enlightening and instructive, and may not have learned in another beginner watercolor class.
