An Introduction to Watercolor Painting with Erica Qualey

May 18, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Fridays, May 4 to 25, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

This four week session is open to anyone new to watercolor. We will focus on learning the characteristics of watercolor and the different tools commonly used. We will also be exploring fun techniques such as masking, building dynamic washes, stamping, pouring and splattering paint, and how to incorporate them into paintings. Individuals will work on a painting throughout the workshop, starting with building an interesting and successful composition through thumbnail sketches and color & value studies, then jumping into the painting process.  So come to class with inspiration, ideas, and maybe some photos/sketches of what you would like to paint!

Erica Qualey is an artist living in midcoast Maine. She received her BFA from Rochester Institute of Technology and works as an artist, illustrator, and studio instructor.
