FREE Demo: Underpaintings in Watercolor with Molly Murrah! Saturday, November 7th, 2015


Using Underpaintings in Your Watercolor Portraits
Molly Murrah
Saturday, November 7, 2015
12-1:30
Free Demonstration
Molly Murrah is a firm believer that underpaintings bring depth and dimension to landscapes, cityscapes, florals, and still lifes, but what about watercolor portraits? Molly has discovered that doing an underpainting takes her portraits to a whole new level and adds an almost 3-dimensional quality to her work.

Pigment particles reflect light differently, especially when applied in layers. Doing an underpainting lays a foundation that infuses your portraits with depth and richness hard to achieve any other way.

In this demo, Molly - a past president of the Northwest Watercolor Society - will show you how to plan your underpaintings and choose colors that can help define your values and enhance your skin tones.

Learn how to add the “wow factor” and add life and vibrancy to your portraits… join Molly for this fun demo!.
