Underwaterscapes: Watercolor Workshop with Chris Blevins and Suzi Vitulli
May 4 @ 10:00 am - May 5 @ 4:00 pm
It’s all about the fishies and other underwater critters and plants at this two-day workshop. We’ll be sharing techniques we learned from fabulous watercolorists Allura Westly and Lian Zhen, combined with our own skills and style too of course.
We’ll spend Day One playing with all the different techniques and approaches you can use to paint an underwaterscape. Day Two, you’ll design your own painting, and paint it. Plus, we’ll do demos and provide you with individual help throughout the day, of course.
Supplies are on your own. See list below. Or if you’re still gearing up your watercolor materials, we can provide what you need for a $20 materials use fee.
We hope to see you for this super fun two-day event with the world’s best art medium…WATERCOLORS!
