Watercolor Pencils Mini-Class

Winston dog watercolorThe Watercolor Pencil Mini-class has four fully-illustrated lessons – inspiration, information, tips, demos, exercises and videos, plus each lesson has a bonus page of links, videos, books, and/or other resources.

Unlike my Watercolor Pencil downloadable eBook where we cover how to paint various subjects (water, people, trees, fire, etc.), here we’re really going after the nitty-gritty, based on things my students have asked for.

We’ll explore:

• What brands work best
for you
• How much water to use
to blend
• Which papers to choose
• What brushes work best
• Whether the pencils are transparent or opaque
• How to apply values
• How to control your effects

• Whether you want to sketch or do a painting
• Watercolor pencils vs. watercolor crayons
• Lifting watercolor pencils
• Which resists work best
• Mixed media
• How to get the effects you want…

Aaron's BridgePLUS the step-by-step demos, inspirations, links and videos you’ve come to expect!

You’ll learn how to choose the tools and approaches that best fit you, or discover new ones you’ll love. You’ll have plenty of chance to try them out. Mini-videos in every lesson explore right along with you, at your convenience, in your own time.

(Some images will have appeared in my book, Watercolor Pencil Magic.)

As with any class, online or otherwise, you’ll get out of the lessons what you put into them.
