Where:  The Nelson Gallery

Email: classes@nelson-gallery.com for more info and to sign-up.

Phone:  540-817-8425 – Wednesday through Saturday, 11-5.

This class is for beginners (raw beginners and those who have “dabbled” in watercolor, with little instruction).

 

Students will learn how to apply paint, charge one color into another and paint a color over a dry color, which is called glazing.  They will also learn how to paint a wash.  Purnell will conduct a paint-along with her students.  She will paint a small portion of a sunflower, stop, then the student will paint what she has demonstrated.  This will continue until the painting is completed.
