Watercolor Crafternoon at Pi(pi)no10:21 PM
This is one item off my post-boards to do list!
I don't remember how I came across Alessandra Lanot's blog Life After Breakfast, but since I did I've been a fan of her watercolor and general craftiness. So when I heard she was holding another Watercolor Crafternoon, I immediately signed up! I didn't know anyone there but kebs; this is one of my last chances to join any workshop I please so carpe diem.
Theoretically, Watercolor Crafternoons are about people getting together to paint and engage in friendly discussion. In reality though, it's become sort of a workshop for watercolor beginners and enthusiasts. Alessa holds a brief lecture about brushes and types of paint, spends about two hours teaching us how to hold the brush and paint washes, and then spends the remaining 45 minutes on the formulated "activities."
Some new things I learned were:
- Tint is a color plus white
- Shade is a color plus black
- Tone is a color plus gray
Color theory is particularly interesting to me because it applies to web design. :p
- Also, when in doubt, ADD WATER. Heehee.
