Tailored to meet the needs of local artists, Strack will teach techniques to paint realistic water and sky.

Participants will also learn how to create convincing reflections and shadows in water and how to paint various types of waves and water movement. Watercolor techniques of glazing, washes, dry brush, masking and lifting will be covered. Also, composition, design, values and use of color temperature will make this workshop worthwhile for any artist.
