In this 2 day workshop, we explore what it means to find “just the right moment” to apply various watercolor techniques and applications. From preventing and creating blooms to salt application (and many, many more in between), learning to determine correct timing and water management can be the key to unlock watercolor success. Instructor demonstrations and paint along student participation and homework will provide a clear understanding of that ‘Goldilocks moment’ in mastering watercolor control.

It’s common for artists to experience creative blocks periodically, there seems to be no access to creative impulses or modes of thinking. But all creative blocks are not created equal. Different blocks require different solutions, not the least of which is to deal with that ever present Inner Critic. In this Technique Takeaway, we will explore through discussion, demonstrations and various exercises, how to get those creative juices flowing.

Cynthia will work with:

Sketch paper or pad
HB or 2B pencil or Pigma Micron pen (0.7) Tombow markers or crayons
