Watercolor Techniques

In class today we did many things in our short time together:

ELP Blogs
Your first blog post is due today! Students had time in class to get these completed. If you missed class time for various reasons please have your posts completed by this evening.

Charcoal Still Life
Today was the last day to complete the charcoal still life. We do not have anymore class time to devote to this. If you have not completed this then you need to come in during lunch, study hall, before or after school to complete this project.

Hatching / Shading Still Life
Today many students completed this project as well. These make up a value study so that you can paint a monochromatic (one color) version of the basic forms we have been studying.

Watercolor Techniques
We also went over six different types of watercolor techniques that you will be learning about and using in the next weeks.

  1. Wash
  2. Glaze
  3. Wet-in-wet
  4. Dry Brush
  5. Lifting
  6. Drop in color
Students created notes as a demonstration was given covering these basic techniques. If you missed today then you need to ask for a demonstration. You will need to be proficient in these techniques as we move towards your final exam in this class.
