WATERCOLOR BOOTCAMP WITH SUSAN WILEY (ONLINE)

Do you want to paint watercolors but are frustrated and don’t know how to start or wish it would not take so much time to learn?  I am teaching this workshop because it took me many years to get to where I am in my career and I want to help you know the joy of painting without the many years I struggled on my own. Frankly, I wish that I had encountered a course like this when I first started.  I laugh when I say it, but it is true that this three-day workshop will put you at the Head of the Class (remember that game?!).  I have taught this workshop to beginners, as well as graphic designers, interior designers and teachers and it has been a huge success! 

In the 3-Class Series, you will:

  • Learn the techniques of handling an angle brush (my workhorse)

  • Learn about watercolor paper and paint and which to use

  • Learn how to mix colors and the reason for using them

  • Learn how to get rich, juicy colors

  • Begin developing your own palette of colors

  • Learn the principles of painting so that your paintings will get noticed

  • Gain artistic confidence

  • End up with two completed paintings (or nearly so)
