In these loose watercolour classes you will learn to paint the idea of an object, to show the essence, the impression (not the semblance), to do with less. You will paint everyday simple objects from photo reference - flowers, fruit, vegetables. This painting style is similar to meditation - it brings ease and joy to the process, however, it requires focus - as most of the strokes that are put on the paper are not possible to "undo". Also, many times you will have to let go of control and embrace the unexpected - the flow of the pigment, drops or the natural blending of two colours into each other.
