Light and Shade in Watercolor
Lifelong Learning

The values in your painting (lights and darks) define dimensional form on a flat surface. Watercolor painters say "shadows build form" since we need to save the whites as untouched paper by building and connecting shadows around the light areas. Learning to see these values and apply them in watercolor is the sole focus of this class. Building this skill will enable you to tackle the things you desire to paint and give you more interesting and realistic paintings. We recommend you have some basic drawing skills and experience with watercolor for this class. Try Beginning Drawing for Watercolor (LLART 337) first.
