Watercolor techniques Zoom class-Private workshop
Hello, everyone. I’m Zakkiya Hamza, a watercolor artist, and designer based in Doha. I’ve taught over 25 in-person watercolor workshops, most of which have been received very well. Most of my workshops are beginner-friendly like this one and you will be able to take away information that you will likely not receive from the free tutorials on the interwebs. I’ll be happy to have you on board in this “new” way of learning.
In this beginner-friendly online workshop via the application Zoom, you will learn the very basic techniques of watercolors. You will start with the basic techniques that include color mixing, wet on wet , layering, etc. You will be provided with a digital workbook or e-book that you can refer back to whenever required and also the class recording will be sent to you.
1. EXPLORING THE BASICS OF COLOR MIXING
Color mixing is an important concept in watercolors and the array of colors that you can create is extraordinary. We will go through the different warm and cool colors and how they can be mixed to create extraordinary palettes.
2.COLOR TEMPERATURE, COLOR WHEEL, AND TRANSPARENCY
Understanding temperature can deepen the skill you need for color mixing. Transparency utilizes value and this can be used in the techniques that will be explained in the next section.
The basic techniques of wet on wet, layering and mark-making will be explored in this section. A deeper understanding of the techniques is crucial in understanding watercolors.
The application “Zoom” must be installed on your preferred device. Basic materials consisting of watercolor paper, watercolor paints, and watercolor brushes along with 2 jars of water and a paper towel must be available on hand to follow along with the workshop. You do not need a specific brand of materials and you can use whatever you have in hand. Make sure you keep everything ready prior to the commencement of the workshop.
Please try to join in 10 minutes before the workshop time so that any technical difficulties can be taken care of before the start of the online watercolor workshop.
