For eight years I have offered classes at Bellevue College, across the lake from Seattle. From Photo to Watercolor Painting is an 8 week evening class for the beginning watercolor painter who wants to learn to create a finished painting or use watercolor techniques. It’s been a great source of inspiration and lots of fun with great results from the students. With my recent move to Bainbridge Island, I’ll be looking for new teaching venues. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for private instruction in my new large studio. My blog has posts showing amazing student work and some teaching content. Search the categories for teaching, process or fine art news.
From Photo to Watercolor Illustration
Explore the basic techniques needed to plan and create watercolor paintings for the illustration or fine art market by experimenting with washes, gradients, values, texture and glazes. Learn to make color and pigment decisions, how to take a painting concept from sketch, to color comp, to a finished painting ready for reproduction. Course ends with a discussion of Photoshop touchup techniques and internet delivery.
