Watercolour and Ink for Journaling

In this watercolour workshop, we will be mixing colour, applying washes, dry brush techniques, etc. to create art together. Valuable information from Bruce’s classes can be used to supplement travel sketching and journals as well as honing the required skills that simplify the painting process. Demos, step by step and one on one instruction combine to help achieve several finished pieces.We will also work from our own mini still life compositions, all as a means to realize the basic steps in producing our art.
