This watercolor workshop will concentrate on creating a striking composition with subjects that have interesting structure, shape, value and texture. Participants will draw with regular graphite pencils and water soluble graphite. They will enlarge small subjects to get the best understanding of what the media can do. Students should bring a dried subject – pods, seed heads, milkweed pods, sunflower heads, rose hips, gourds or dried cones. The instructor will have these to share as well.
