July 14-15 (Saturday & Sunday)
Have you wondered how a realistic watercolor artist creates atmospheric
perspective? In addition, do you desire to learn how to layer washes to
create more realistic and intense colors and values? J. M. Littleton will
reveal her process of how she begins with a preliminary drawing and light

these concepts through discussion and demonstration and they will practice
