This DVD workshop is designed to help beginning watercolorists gain confidence in a sometimes frustrating but always rewarding medium.


Watercolor instructor Lynn Powers presents basic concepts, techniques and tips that help students build a strong foundation from which to grow and explore. The DVD includes five lessons, each of which addresses a specific watercolor technique and introduces a basic concept important to successful painting.


Students learn the flat wash, variegated wash, wet-on-wet and negative painting techniques and discover how to use expressive brushwork in their paintings. The DVD includes printable line drawings for each on-camera demonstration, so everyone can paint along. Each lesson comes with a second exercise that students can print from the DVD for continued practice. These companion exercises include line drawings, original reference photos and illustrated step-by-step instructions.
