QoR Explore - QoR Watercolors

  • Venus Studios LLC 44850 Las Palmas Ave Suite C Palm Desert, CA 92260 (map)

In this fun, fast paced one day session you will learn valuable information about QoR watercolors, guiding you through the basics while opening up new possibilities. Learn the unique properties of watercolor, and the new preparation grounds that transform any surface, canvas or wood panel into a watercolor friendly one. Discover new watercolor mediums for unusual effects on paper, canvas and wood panels. Check out the amazing new grounds to prepare contemporary surfaces for painting, drawing, pastel and mixed water media. All students will create a beautiful watercolor journal. We will spend some time creating watercolor prints, prints without a press. We’ll start with a warm up exercises using QoR Watercolors to do a small painting or two. Next we’ll take it up a notch and dive into QoR Watercolors on Dura-Lar Plates and create beautiful Monoprints. 

You’ll leave with lots of ideas and the potential of combining the various techniques and other methods of painting and printmaking plus your own watercolor journal and several watercolor prints and paintings. I will supply the QoR Watercolors, the various grounds and mediums and some brushes and all the related tools.

All levels welcome! Free literature and a free sample bag of Golden products!
