with G Caruso

Learn how to incorporate watercolor techniques into your sketchbook practice. 

Watercolor is a medium beloved for its immediacy and versatility. Centuries before the modern romantic age revival as a carnet de voyage (travel sketching) medium, watercolor was employed by old masters in their sketches. We will explore how to use watercolor to create project sketches, color studies and creative illustrations in our sketchbooks.

Join us, whether you are experienced or just starting your sketchbook practice. The techniques we cover will provide a foundation in watercolor sketching for beginners while providing new concrete skills for the more advanced. 

Topics Covered:

  • Basic principles of watercolor painting and use of the medium
  • How to do color studies and develop a personal color palette
  • Learn different styles of watercolor sketching
