How do you take the unknown and render that in Art?

Watercolor Workshop

This is a hands on workshop. I’ll introduce you to how I approach watercolors and combine them with colored pencils. To produce intuitive works such as this..

Abstract Swirls
media: watercolor and colored pencil

As always the workshop is open to all skill levels and ages. Though if you are 12 or younger I request you have a parent in tow.  I will provide the paper and tape. I have limited supplies so if you have your own paints and pencils I encourage you to bring your own.
