Up and Running Watercolor Workshop!

Have you always wanted to learn to paint?  The Up and Running Watercolor workshop is an entry level, beginner, workshop. Here’s your opportunity right in Vero Beach!
The August guest artist is Peggy Kirkwood and she is offering this workshop on Saturday, August 3rd. Students registering for this workshop usually have little to no previous experience with watercolor. All supplies are included and the student will leave the workshop with a wire bound Strathmore Journal of all of the completed exercises to reference for years to come! This is a Foundational workshop with exercises given to build the student’s knowledge and confidence with the many techniques used to complete a watercolor painting. Critical information covered will be pigment choice, paper choice, brush choices, palette preferences, pigment personalities, water to pigment ratio, brush strokes, color mixing, along with the importance of strong values and using the white of the paper as “white”.  In addition, the student will learn the basic techniques of wet on wet painting, wet on dry painting, flat washes, variegated washes, soft and hard edges, techniques to paint skies with clouds, how to use a credit card to create rocks, how to use Liquid Frisket, how to spatter, scumble, scrape and lift paint, how to use a toothbrush for texture, using plastic wrap for texture and many more exciting techniques!
This workshop is designed to have the student learning 3 to 5 important skills at the same time by doing the structured exercises so that by the end of the workshop the student is ready to begin painting! See “Where & When” below:
