"WATERCOLOR: Learning and Perfecting a Loose Style" with Alex Sharma (February 2024)

Learning & Perfecting a Loose Style
with Alex Sharma 

Wednesdays (9am to 12pm)

February 7, 14, 21, 28, 2024

Art League Academy
(106 Cordillo Parkway, Hilton Head Island, SC)


Imagine clear, transparent and luminous watercolors where your brush strokes make the shape and form of your subject without picky detail. Mastering a loose technique is the groundwork that will enable you to paint intuitively and creatively.

 Specific brush technique, transparent layering, juxtaposition of values and use of visual texture and rhythm to create your scene are the focus of this course. We will paint from life and from your reference photos. Each class starts with a demonstration specific to the learning for the day.

This course is designed for intermediate and advanced watercolor students.
