I don't consider myself a traditional artist. I am self taught, which often lends itself to thinking out of the box when it comes to more traditional mediums. I am a mixed media artist so I am always looking for how I can use mediums together. This watercolor class is everything you need to get started painting with watercolors, in a non traditional way. Learn basic watercolor techniques. I will share some of my favorite ways to paint with watercolors. All you need are some watercolors and a sketchbook! Here are some of the techniques covered in this course:
We will be creating a range of landscapes, still life's and abstract paintings.
My name is Wendy Brightbill and I am somewhat of a creative wanderer, an artist who enjoys exploring a multitude of mediums and styles. I love messy child-like play especially when it involves paint. I picked up a paintbrush after a car accident rearranged my brain from a closed head injury. I believe that there is healing to be found in art making and getting lost in the process. I try not to treat my art as being too precious, and yet, I am deeply committed to my daily creative practice. Art making is a little like breathing air for me. I can’t live without it. I am also a mother to three beautiful girls and a wife of 17 years to my biggest cheerleader. I have lived in Colorado for all of my life. All I ever needed to know, I learned from being a kindergarten teacher for four years. I just turned forty and I am finding this new found super power of saying no to the things that don’t bring me joy or peace.
