Red Hot Poppies

Level II – This class is for those who have taken at least one class in the medium. Students should be comfortable with the basics of how to use and manipulate the medium.

Paint these beauties by touching undiluted watercolor to still damp paper for a stunning bleed with the deepest, darkest tones! Create petal curves and ruffles by building up and pulling out using the correct combination of paint and water. Incorporate an unpredictable background. We will use brush control to portray hard, soft, and lost edges. Add sparkle with highlights. Red often dries dull, but there are tricks to make the color sing!

Ages 16-Adult
