Watercolor on Yupo Paper is the second series of online workshop offered by Pat Morgan and Pine Shores. Pat has offered us a new version of learning we thought you would enjoy. You will have access to watch the videos on demand and to paint at your own pace. You will be able to save these videos and download them for your keeping. During the week, you have the opportunity to email photos of your watercolor efforts and Pat will provide her critique and input,using one of the ways you prefer to communicate with her. 

Since the workshop is done in your home, the virtual workshop will extend the week of Wednesday, September 30 to Wednesday, October 7.

Workshop Description:
Yupo paper has a very smooth slick surface that does not absorb water. The paint flows and blends in a variety of colors and textures creating luscious marks on your paintings.
The workshop will include:  
• color application and brush strokes
• a variety of textures used to create unique marks on your paper
• creating strong positive shapes on simple backgrounds and negative shapes on strong backgrounds. Each has its own unique appearance.

Supplies list (click here)

The Critique Process:
Pat will point out to students what has worked in their paintings and why – and what could be improved and how.
1. Students can email Pat a copy of their photo reference and their painting and receive a detailed critique.
2. Students can email Pat a copy of their painting and have a phone call critique where questions can be discussed.
