Expressive Watercolor / Planning a Painting

Instructor: Susan O’Neill

Have you always wanted to create either a large watercolor, a. commissioned piece, or a well design watercolor painting that is detailed but still holds the freshness and magic of the watercolor medium?
This class will explain a systematic approach that allows for more freedom and looseness to beautifully capture your inspiration without over-working. Understanding how and what to plan dramatically improves your chances of a successful painting which helps to avoid irreversible mistakes like losing the white and flat lifeless color. The instructor demonstrates the step-by-step process, correcting errors, and brush and paint control.
No class on July 4th.

Covid Policy for Students in this Class

The Art League will no longer require masks in our classrooms, store, gallery, or offices. However, we ask that our students, faculty, and staff use caution and thoughtfulness when they are close to others for prolonged periods. For example, students using shared equipment in the classroom studios are strongly encouraged to wear masks for their safety, and the consideration of those around them, when in tight proximity to others.Masks are also recommended if your home community risk level is high (Alexandria is currently at medium risk), or you’ve been told by a health professional to wear a mask based on your personal risk factors.

The Art League reserves the right to reinstate mandatory masks, and additional covid safety policies should we feel local conditions warrant such action.

For more information, contact The Art League School at 703-683-2323.
