2018 Visual Evidence Best of Show / Serenade / John McLaren / watercolor

Watercolorists spend a lot of time learning about different tools for creating their art.  In this workshop we'll be looking at the paint itself.  Pigment characteristics are more important in watercolor than any other medium.  This means that selecting a watercolor paint involves much more than just picking a color.  Understanding pigment characteristics can provide a whole new set of options for the creative watercolorist.  Join local artist, John McLaren for this look and learn with watercolor.
