WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:  This class is appropriate for beginners, to intermediate level watercolorists. It is a natural followup class to Darlene's "Fractured Flowers and Landscapes" but is an excellent stand alone class as well. 

Darlene has been playing around with watercolors on a new surface to watercolor artists call Yupo… it is a non-absorbant slick paper which allows the watercolor paints to flow and slide in a way  you can get super interesting results from. She will show you how to mask, lift color, use stamps, stencils, watercolor crayons and pencils. Darlene has been teaching watercolor painting for many years and is expert at tailoring instruction to each students level and expectation. 

If you enjoy learning new ways to play with watercolor, this class will satisfy.
