Fall Term: Illustrative Watercolour II/III (Tuesday Evenings)

Illustrative Watercolour II/III (Tuesday Evenings) with Dwayne James
Tuesday 6-9 pm

Have you ever wanted to create hyper-detailed, illustrative watercolours that enhance or even warp reality? It’s surprisingly easy, especially if you can take advantage of science and technology in the planning stages.

In this ten week course, you will be guided through the planning and production of an illustrative, photo-realistic watercolour painting that is based on your own choice of subjects. You will be encouraged to use your imagination and create a finished image that is based on a real subject, but changes it in unique ways that couldn’t be captured with conventional photography.

Most of you have been taught to paint what you see; this course will teach you to paint what you want to see.
