Watercolor Workshop with Lian Quan Zhen

Lian teaches basic techniques such as compositions and coloring, and his unique methods of "Color Pouring and Blending" and "Paint Around (negative painting)." He shows how to mix colors on watercolor papers, as well as letting the pigments paint themselves. Only three primary colors will be used for painting. There are 4-6 short demos each day with student practicing between, so that they can absorb and assimilate the lessons. 

Price:   $290 for all 3 days. Limited spots, so you may pre-register $100 of your total cost or pay in full now to reserve. The remainder will be paid in full by August 30th
