Students will learn as the Spencer demonstrates a variety of techniques for applying paint to paper in a plein air / studio setting. The class will focus on various components and aspects of painting watercolors, i.e. differences in brushes, papers, paint quality, as well as application techniques including washes, splattering, dropping and pouring and dry brushing. When, where and how to appropriately use each tool and technique. Class structure is appropriate for ALL skill levels.

We typically begin with brush exercises designed to get students familiar with color mixing and the fluidity of watercolor. Students will make their own color charts using select colors. They will then learn various approaches to gradient washes both single color and two-color gradients. As class progresses we will move into value studies, both monochromatic and duo-chromatic. Once students are comfortable with these exercises we will begin painting quarter sheet watercolors. Spencer demonstrates each phase of developing a painting. Students will replicate each step on their own painting. Lastly, students will design and paint their own watercolors from either reference photographs, studies or life.

Costs vary by location, travel distance and other aspects but, student costs average $75 per day. Workshops are one to five days in length. Anticipate painting about six hours each day. Ideal class size is 10-15 students.

Students should bring ample paper for exercise and be prepared to paint as many as two (2) 11x15” paintings each day over the course of the workshop.
