Watercolor Painting

Unlike oil or acrylic painting, where the paints essentially stay where they are placed, watercolor painting is a much more fluid process, involving the application of pigments and their interaction within a watery medium. Utilizing a wet-on-wet approach, students will become familiar with how form flows into being and the effects of intermingling colors, creating landscapes of color exploration.

Wet-on-wet has a loosening and strengthening effect. In this method of painting, liquid pigment is applied to moistened paper. Water facilitates the movement and intermingling of the colours as they create new colours among themselves. Form flows into being, and can dissolve out of it again. The process remains fluid until we choose to stop and let it dry.
