Painting ‘trees’ in transparent watercolour – learning watercolour techniques

Learn the characteristics and techniques of watercolors, which are familiar to many people.
Generally, the term ‘watercolor’ refers to ‘transparent watercolor’.
There are difficulties, such as the fact that it is transparent and therefore cannot be modified.
However, the beauty of the transparent layers of color makes the creative process fun and fosters an intuitive sense of color.
The coincidental nature of watercolor and the mixing of colors can also be enjoyed with instantaneous pleasure and emotion.
In this course, participants will learn the characteristics and usage of transparent watercolors, techniques (blurring, smudging, layering and masking techniques) and paint a single picture.
