Quilt Squares In Watercolor - Hearts Of Gold
Bold Lines, Gold Accents and the Colors Of The Season
Please join me, Laure, to learn how to create these Hearts Of Gold Quilt Squares! Simple to create and yet endlessly changeable, these squares are painted with watercolor using an analogous palette. as well as a complementary palette. This class is designed to help you see shapes, choose color confidently and how to make fun variations on just one template.
Each heart incorporates a small swirl of gold watercolor and each design starts from a golden circle. The bold, black lines work to lend each design a graphic look.
Space has been left below each square for you to add a holiday sentiment, if desired.
This class explores both an analogous palette as well as the use of complementary colors to create more dynamic color combinations. I won't say it's stress-free (that's up to you), but I can say it is a great way to learn about using both palettes!
Laure Ferlita is an accomplished watercolorist residing in sunny Florida. Watercolors, nature, travel, painting on location, sketching for the joy of it, and most especially, color, are her passions!
Vibrant color can be found in almost any subject and its shadows. It is her joy to bring those colors to life on paper with some paint and a little water. For many years, Laure worked as a graphic designer, so you will most likely see a strong graphic element in her work.
She started sharing her joy and love of sketching on location over at ImaginaryTrips.com in 2009 and has helped many "travelers" to find their artistic voice since then.
“Watercolor, for me, is the perfect sketching medium." Laure says. “It provides ease of use, quick color saturation, and clean up is a snap and really, you don't need much equipment. After you move past the hype of how difficult watercolor can be, you find out how much fun it is to get out there and actually create on location. It's way too much fun!"
