Quickly capture a scene using flowing lines and spontaneous watercolor techniques. Instructor Cindy Briggs provides step-by-step directions in creating landscape paintings and vignettes inspired from virtual travel from Europe to California. This “go with the flow” technique is perfect for studies, travel journals, and finished fine art.

Complete one or more paintings as you use techniques in composition, drawing, and painting. Lessons explore managing watercolor consistency while applying mingling colors with wet-in-wet, wet-on-dry, and layering techniques. For experienced beginner and intermediate students. The artist provides images from her travels or you can use your own.
