Quilt Squares In Watercolor - Violet Block
Learning to See and Paint Values
Come and join me, Laure, to learn to create quilted squares in watercolor based on values! This class is designed to help you see value, understand how the addition of texture changes the value and how to make unique and fun variationson just one template.
Do you have a hard time going "dark enough" in your artwork?
Do you have a difficult time "reading values"?
Do you struggle to get a full range of values (lights, darks and mid-tones) in your paintings?
This class is a great way to learn about using values to get really dark darks, learn to get a full range of values and to recognize the different values in your work. 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 values and have fun!
This project is already drawn out for you in the handout so that you can quickly get into painting!
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!"
