Class / Workshop  |  Washes and Edge Control: Hard, soft, and mysterious edges for mood and focal point

International Center for Watercolor

Sunday, February 9, 2020, 1–3:30 pm

Beginning Watercolor, Part 2

Artist/Instructor:  Jennifer Koury
$40 members/$50 not-yet members
*Fee includes both classes:  Sunday, February 2 and 9

*Supplies are included for beginingers in the workshop fee.

Participants will begin with watercolor wash techniques, including, wet into wet and wet on dry. Using water, create edge control-both hard and soft, to contrast your color pigment and values.  Hands-on experimentation will be guided by the instructor’s demonstration. Then, paint your own work with instructor provided photo reference, or bring a simple photo of trees or a garden to work from.

Jennifer Koury, a watercolorist, delights in both the natural world's play of light and color on forms, and watercolor's whimsical properties: color bleeding, reticulation and natural paint sediments.  Koury has enjoyed a rewarding career as a dedicated painter and freelance illustrator.  She is published in both children's and adult based books. Her work is featured at George Washington's Mount Vernon and Yuma Regional Medical Center, Arizona.  After graduating from Virginia Commonwealth University in Painting and Printmaking, Koury continued her studies to graduate from Art Center College of Design, California.  A member of the BSA, NFWS and NFPAP, she resides with her family in Buffalo, and is inspired by the natural beauty of Western New York.
