Home is where the heart is, especially when you paint a one of a kind portrait of a house important to you or a loved one! Watercolor painting is a flexible and forgiving style of art and this workshop is a great opportunity for you to learn the basics of watercolor technique, to have fun in this low pressure class, and to create a painting that celebrates the special place you call "home"! The finished paintings that come out of this class are perfect to frame and hang on the wall of your home, or as a thoughtful gift for a loved one or the newlyweds. In this class we'll introduce you to the properties of watercolor paint, brushes & papers as we facilitate teaching everyone how to watercolor & illustrate a portrait of their house! We'll guide you through some quick basic sketching and help you get the proportion and perspective just right, before instructing you on a very simple watercolor and illustration technique to create your unique artistic rendering of your home. All skill levels welcome! Bring a detailed colored photograph or two that includes the entire house, or have one handy on your phone or ipad. Approximate portrait size will be between 5x7 and 9x12, depending on your preference.
