Juicy Watercolors 2021: An intermediate level class

October 9 @ 9:00 am - October 10 @ 4:00 pm


Juicy Watercolors 2021 is a comprehensive workshop that strengthens the technical foundations of watercolorists interested in pursuing wet-in-wet style of painting. Perfect for intermediate artists. Resilient beginners welcome.

For those wishing to take my masterclass in 2022 but have not taken a thorough intermediate level workshop that emphasizes wet-in-wet painting, this workshop is the prerequisite. There is no hand holding in the masterclass – which can be debilitating to those who flourish after seeing demonstrations.

In Juicy WatercolorsUma will demonstrate all basic skills that she will ask students to engage in. This is the workshop which opens the gateway to a masterclass and commensurate study.

This is a 2-day workshop with the group working together for 6 hours daily + 45 min lunch break.
