In this six-hour workshop, Watercolor Artist, Sharla Sevy, will share techniques to use to depict textiles in still life watercolor paintings. Textiles can be full of folds, wrinkles and irregular shapes. The key to painting draped textiles is thinking about shape, shadow and texture. Participants will learn which tools work best when depicting texture and how to map out ridges, folds, and shadows, along with directional changes in pattern and texture.

Participants should bring their own watercolor palette, brushes, and a 1/4 sheet of 140lb Cold Press watercolor paper, stretched and adhered to a rigid surface (board). Alternatively, a 10×14 or 12×16 Cold Press Watercolor Block can be used. Scraps of watercolor paper are helpful to practice technique and test colors.

All levels are welcome to participate in this six hour workshop on Saturday, October 27, from 9:30 AM- 3:30 PM. Tuition is $60 for all instruction and the image. Bring lunch or a snack.

A minimum of 5 students is required for this class to be held. Stretched paper mounted onto a rigid surface (board) will be available to purchase from the instructor for $9.00. You will receive $5 back when you return the board to the instructor.
