Frilly Dancer - new class

Lately I have been going through a bit of a rut with my watercolors. It's just that I want more I suppose....I am so used to layering with acrylic paint that I was feeling a bit lost in my watercolor practice. I began to experiment with layering watercolors, gesso, chalk pastel, and ink sprays and what happened were these gorgeous organic shaped dancer girls. I love the flowing, frilly, organic shapes of the dress.
This expressive class will help you open up to the possibilities that come with watercoloring. I love to watercolor but I sometimes think something is missing. I want more layers and juicy textures and splatters. Let's expand those feelings and let go of the "right way" for watercolor. We will celebrate the delicious organic and flowing shape of the dress. We will not worry about perfection. I take you through the drawing phase all the way to then end talking you through each tiny movement.
