Aristotle said, “In all things in nature there is something of the marvelous” and few things are as marvelous as bird’s nests! For this class we’ll again study nests but this time we’ll paint using layers of watercolor wash and resist. We’ll gain an understanding of dry brush techniques, wet into wet, spattering and other ways we can play with watercolor. We’ll work on two paintings at once to allow for drying time. One will be a detailed study of the amazing texture and interweaving of grasses, sticks and other found items while the other will have more of a design focus and incorporate leaf shadows and negative space with a nest. Through observation and the use of watercolor, we’ll learn to really look at some of nature’s most exquisite handiwork as we create our own art and realize that nests are works of art as well.
