I admit. I’ve never done watercolors. I’ve used oils for many years, and later added acrylics, a similar medium; but I’ve never tried water colors.
You will have the chance to see me stumble through this class from first drawing to subsequent washes.
I’m also going to share a few pictures of my instructor, Parker Harlow. Parker has donated hours of his time in helping budding artists in our league flourish.
He has also offered space in prime locations for members to display their works. Kudos to Parker!
I started my painting with a drawing and then used masking material to protect those areas that must remain white. In some cases, this is unnecessary, and the artist can simply wait for certain areas to dry before applying more paint to avoid the “bleed.”
I will have to refresh some of my drawing which was erased out. Next week, I’ll add more washes and start putting in the details. Stay tuned….
Wm. Parker Harlowe is the owner of Harlowe Studios Inc. and is well known for his murals and artwork in the Fort Myers area. To quote Parker: "Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life."
