Course Description

Learn techniques for capturing the hues and textures of living creatures. Fur, feathers, fish scales, and human faces can be the most endearing subjects to paint, but often daunting to approach with watercolor. Leyah shows students how this fluid medium can be the perfect match for conveying the graceful movements and eloquent poses of both people and animals. Each class will include warm up exercises and demonstrations as you are led towards a final project of your own choice, as you explore different aspects like anatomy, light, color, and how to create harmonious natural environments to compliment your subject matter. All Levels Welcome.
