New Watercolor Workshop
Watercolor “Failures” to Fantastics!
Instructor: Becky Bense
Saturday, November 5th, 2022, 10am-2pm
If you are a watercolor artist you probably have a stack of unfinished paintings. You may even have a few you consider failures. Instructor Becky Bense has found several ways to salvage those stacks into works of art! This workshop will explore some tradition ways to resolve our work and some more radical ways to use them as jumping off points.
