Learn the best techniques for photographing high-contrast scenes.

This one-day workshop will start your watercolor journey.  We will learn the fundamentals of the watercolor medium and the exciting method of applying paint in a fresh and vibrant way. The day will be spent learning varied techniques, how to set up your palette of colors, and the importance of shapes and values.  This information will be the jump-start you need to become a watercolor artist indoors and out in nature!
