This six week class will teach you how to use the medium of watercolor to paint loose, impressionistic figure and portrait sketches and also more developed finished portraits of your favorite people. You will begin with how to draw the figure and face for painting, how to achieve a likeness and how much detail to include in the drawing. Skin tone colors and how to paint all the facial features will also be covered. Finally, to complete your paintings you will learn different ways to paint the clothing and backgrounds.
You will also have the opportunity to paint directly from the clothed model in this class.
