In this class Kate Thompson will be creating fanciful girls using watercolors, pastels and acrylics. These girls are created in a somewhat whimsical way but with some understanding of a more realistic approach. There will be exercises in creating a more realistic portrait which you will then use and abstract to something more fanciful.
You will learn how to make little watercolor paper books where you will explore techniques, prints and color ways. This will be a wonderful record to rely on as you work on more finished pieces.
You will then be guided as you start working on your own girls. You will have templates to download for you to practice the painting techniques. You will learn how to draw the girls that you will then transform into fanciful creatures with very different personalities.
You will learn how to draw a portrait using charcoal and then layer the charcoal drawing with watercolors and white acrylic paint. You will then paint watercolor and acrylic roses to garnish her face.
