DVD The Dance of Watercolor: Beginners and Beyond
The Dance of Watercolor Beginners and Beyond" is ideally suited for beginners and advanced beginners who want to learn watercolor, drawing and color basics. By following my step-by-step watercolor method that shows how to easily control the interaction of paint and water on the brush, palette and paper, students learn that watercolor can be a very forgiving medium.
The DVD contains the equivalent of 7 private lessons, including watercolor basics using my watercolor method chart, color principles using a color wheel I designed, drawing tips for landscapes, and a watercolor demonstration of a landscape using bright, expressive color. The watercolor demonstration also includes how to correct areas of the painting.
The DVD menu contains extras, such as exercises in drawing and color mixing, a quick reference guide to my watercolor method, composition tips, and a slide show of my artwork. The DVD insert provides a supply list and a chart of my watercolor method that shows watercolor’s range of transparency on dry and wet paper.
“Julie carefully and methodically explains things that beginners have trouble with. Her color and drawing lessons are very useful and her water-to-paint ratio is so clearly explained that it will give students a jump-start in learning. I am recommendingthis DVD to
all my friends who are new to watercolor.”
- Sue Johnston, Past President of California Watercolor Association
“Julie has a genuine passion for teaching watercolor and for giving her students as much personal attention and encouragement as possible. Her demonstrations are excellent and cover a wide range of subjects and techniques.”
- Charlotte Hjellum, watercolor student
