    If you want to know how to get a fuller range of colors from your watercolors using warm and cool primaries, build confidence in your selection of color combinations, and achieve more cohesiveness in your paintings, then this is the class for you. The focus will be on color mixing exercises and paintings based on those exercises to gain experience. The goal is to emerge from this class feeling more confident in your abilities and instincts with color choices—and put you on the path to use color more predictably, creating the results you want. Introduction to Watercolor, or having some watercolor experience is helpful as a prerequisite to this class. Our class will be on Zoom, a video chat software that is really easy to use. Just download the app on your device. I will provide you with a link before the first class . Click on it when class begins, and you are in! Four 2.5-hour sessions. Maximum of 8 students.
