About This Experience

Paint-a-long and participate or join as a viewer - all are welcome!

Join Wennie Huang and learn how she applies limited palettes using Van Gogh Watercolours Pocket Boxes on Van Gogh Watercolour Paper. Wennie will share her photograph of a sailboat in Pamet Harbor, Cape Cod, as a reference photo to develop paintings completed with limited palettes. Her demonstration will show how dark colours can be applied first, followed by very wet colour mixes on top to create spontaneous and luminous effects. Additionally, she will demonstrate some of the unique properties of Van Gogh watercolour paper, including textures you can achieve from granulation, softening edges, and lifting.
