Underpainting in Watercolor: Work in Layers to Achieve Brilliance

Learn to make your colors sing with this important watercolor technique.

ages: Adults, 14+

Learn the technique of underpainting. The first layer of color painted on the paper—the “underpainting”—addresses value rather than color. This technique works well for allowing color to sing and also helps make complicated subjects more accessible. Margaret will demonstrate many watercolor techniques while teaching this first painting step. When the underpainting is dry, you will glaze your work with pure color. Discover this 2-stage process that pushes you to leave more whites, achieve darker darks, and layer vibrant colors to achieve maximum brilliance. This is watercolor at its best. This workshop is for participants with some experience painting in watercolor.
