The Intermediate / Advanced Watercolor Studio is intended for students that have completed Beginning Watercolor through at least one of the Advanced Techniques Classes or one of the Studio Classes.  The studio focuses specifically on reducing clutter and achieving focus in complex compositions.  There will be an emphasis on the techniques required in achieving depth and textures in completed paintings.  The students will also learn how to plan / stage more complex compositions, new ways of using classic watercolor techniques and new approaches to detail.  Three to four individual compositions will be covered including seascapes and landscapes; the students will be asked to bring one photograph of their own for a final project. The analysis of paintings will also be covered along with art history related to the compositions and techniques.   Nineteenth century American, British and European artists will be discussed throughout the course.
