My Watercolor Demo at Jerry's Artarama

Recently, I taught a demo at Jerry's Artarama "Fun with Watercolors 101".
I showed participants several simple watercolor techniques, washes, layering, salt application, sponging, etc. And then we did a sunset painting.
I had a good time teaching, and students came up with impressive results.
I used flat and round brushes, watercolor paper, and paints.
Timing is very important with watercolors because you can manipulate different outcomes depending on how wet the surface is.

In my artwork I often sprinkle salt in areas to give it extra visual texture, and I like to sprinkle colors on top with a wet brush. I combine traditional layering technique with experimental spontaneous ones.
