Durango Watercolor Workshop - Days 2 & 3




Our two-day project for Saturday and Sunday was Prism Paintings.

DAY ONE




Demonstrating the wet-in-wet underpainting




After everyone paints their under paintings, they draw their grids.

After the break, everyone did a drawing, transferred the drawing to the painting, and then painted a yellow underpainting on their subjects, ignoring the grid for now.









            









DAY TWO

Everyone was anxious to get back to their paintings, as soon as they arrived in the morning.
