Carol Cooper Watercolor Workshop

This will be a fun exploration of a variety of watercolor techniques and styles.  There will be a focus on texture, color, and composition. We will be working from loose realism to abstraction.  Many surprises!  Each project will demonstrated with lots of one-on-one help.  Most of our projects will be small, but you may work as large as you wish.

Skill level: 
Beginner – Advanced.  Beginners are encouraged to jump in and have fun.
The more advanced painters will be challenged and supported as well.

Advanced students:  Just bring your regular watercolor supplies.

For those who need some supplies:

Any watercolor paints you have will be fine.  I teach using watercolor in tubes.  (I really love Daniel Smith’s Quinacridone Gold.)  Make sure you have red, blue, yellow, brown, black

  • 1” flat watercolor brush (synthetic or sable or a blend)
  • #8 pointed round watercolor brush that comes to a good point (synthetic or sable or a blend)

140 lb. cold pressed watercolor paper.  (a tablet form of paper is fine).  Try to get acid-
