What a fabulous class! With demos on many different techniques, tips on materials and hands on painting time, Anne Abgott's "Daring Color" watercolor workshop was awesome!
We learned Anne's amazing technique for 'mingling' transparent watercolors directly on the paper, instead of mixing on the palette. And, I love, love, love working on 300 lb. watercolor paper now!
One thing that I neglected to mention on the notes below, is that Anne had us work from both a black & white photocopy of our reference picture and the color copy. What a great tool for seeing the range of values in your subject! Each of us left with a complete...well in my case...almost complete...painting.
