This class is for intermediate to advanced watercolor students. Line and wash is a watercolor technique that combines a line drawing with a watercolor painting. Students will learn how to combine watercolor and ink to create a painting. More traditional paintings can be created as well as urban sketching style paintings. This technique has been used for centuries to create paintings. Purnell will conduct a paint-along with her students. The class will work on the same image, but each will be unique due to the nature of line and wash.
