Watercolor with Purpose
E.B. Lewis has designed his workshop to instruct each student to strengthen their abilities and find their creative voice, this class is not about his style or subject matter. Whether one is new to watercolor or an experienced painter (realistic or non-objective), this class will help artist begin to apply contemporary concepts in watercolor and design, making their work more expressive and stronger. This workshop will include demonstrations and discussions on application, design, color theory, and painting with feeling.
