The course ‘Watercolor and Inventive Thinking’ will allow you to experiment, invent and create new combinations of figurative or abstract images with watercolor or acrylic wash. Using visualization, imagination and your own intuition this course will assist you to unlock your “inventive thinking”.
You will be able to develop an image that does not exist in the real world. Also, you will experiment with combinations of techniques that can be used to create works of art that appear complex, yet easy to produce. All the elements of painting are introduced in guided exercises that will be held inside the studio and taken outdoors.
Works can be done in any scale with watercolor or Acrylic wash on Aquabord or preferred watercolor paper.
Flexibility and open-mindedness are essential to reach your full potential ability to paint without restriction. This course is appropriate for beginners as well as more advanced students.
