Introduction to Direct Watercolor
Subtitled:  How to paint like Suzala
It started a couple of months ago.  During Show and Tell Suzala would tell us that the work she was showing had been painted directly, meaning there was no underdrawing.   No pencil, ... nothing.  She just jumped in.  Joan started working directly too.  They were working large and bold, with deep rich shadows and bold composition.  I think everyone found this new direction exciting, but where to even begin?

​Learn the basics ​of direct watercolor painting​.   ​Direct watercolor is like no other style of painting. ​Suzala will demonstrate what makes it different and offer you ​strategies and ​techniques to overcome the ​reasonable ​fear of not having a pencil sketch to ​guide you when you start to add color.

​Suzala will cover all the basics needed to understand the foundations to this type of painting​,​ values, colors, paints and paper
​Learn how to start, what to look for, how to stay on target,  and how to ​finesse what you see into a great painting​.​

​The workshop will take place on Sunday, October 2, 2022 and will be conducted by the fountain at Bryant Park.
