Watercolor Texture on Masa Paper

 Learn to paint your furry friends and wildlife with the most fun and forgiving medium on the planet! No matter what your skill level is with this great medium, you will learn how to depict furs, feathers, and scales. We will also pay special attention to animals in their landscape. In this class we will provide plenty of photographic material, but you can bring your own as well. Sunny will do two demos, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and show you how to create contrast, depth, volume and texture. We may also introduce other mediums that will help with details and add variety to the painting, including color pencils and acrylics. Participants will create two paintings, and plenty of individual coaching will be provided.

Alcohol inks are a concentrate with an alcohol base. While some techniques are reminiscent of  watercolors, there is no water used. Alcohol Blending Solution or simple 91% isopropyl alcohol can be mixed with the inks to thin them, blend them, or create various effects.  The inks can be applied with brushes, sponges, or out of the bottle.
