Gina says, "There are many styles of watercolor painting that follow a traditional approach – mine is not one of them! I like to explore and experiment in a fun and fast way so that it is like playing with color. My techniques are loose and fluid and allow you to find your own way and style. I want the paint to express itself and show its personality. This style of painting is about letting go and freeing up!"Until one has loved an animal a part of one's soul remains unawakened." Anatole France In this two day workshop you will learn Gina's approach to capturing the essence of animals using watercolor and water based mixed media.
Watercolor is like animals in many ways - organic, transparent, and flowing and with a mind of its own. You will learn Gina's No Excuses watercolor techniques, which are easy, expressive and intuitive. Learn how to draw and paint your favorite furry critters and winged ones. This class is great for beginners as well as seasoned artists who want to loosen up and approach watercolor in a freeing way!
Note: This workshop is a great extension of the No Excuses Watercolor workshop offered May 20-21
