What is there not to enjoy in painting the tulip fields? Glorious bands of color help you to focus on color compositions. Rolling clouds toward the Cascades help you to develop your control of wet-on-wet and master painting clouds. Enjoy the challenge of directing the eye through fields of flowers, past old barns, and up into the sky. Or move in close and explore color and shape relationships in a simple grouping of flowers.

This workshop is OF the tulip fields, not “in” them. Try to visit them before class.

There is an art to the handling of a watercolor brush. A brushstroke should have grace and beauty, often telling the story in as few strokes as possible.

Learn basic brush handling and add to that the understanding of how to say more with less by developing skill with your use of your brushes.
