“Landing” by Marilyn Johansen



About this workshop:


You will explore some loose, fun ways to work with watercolor pigments.  We’ll have an interactive lecture about design.  If you have taken this class last year, you will find different techniques to incorporate an abstract design into our loose watercolor play.  Then we will interject realism! This is FUN and a great way to learn.
