They say that there is a mystery and charm in painting with watercolors. But that specific quality in watercolor paintings comes out only if you can understand and apply the fluidity of the medium. Learn these techniques starting with the absolute basics, from an award winning watercolorist. Join us as we make this beautiful painting of forest trees on a moonlit night in cool purples & blues. This is a guided session, the artist will guide you and paint along with you. Just a love for colors and an eagerness to learn and have fun is enough for this. Great for both beginners as well as artists.
