Painting on Plate Bristol with Nancy Gaucher-Thomas

A Unique Approach to Watercolor 

In this class we will work from the still life and will experiment and learn the unique qualities and characteristics of working with watercolor ( transparent and body color) on plate Bristol. So much of how I paint has been knowing and learning how to manipulate and guide puddles of paint that flow from the brush rather than painting with aggressive strokes and pushing and scrubbing the paint into the surface. My painting method has become a process of alternating: applying broad areas of color, wiping out areas to create light and dark patterns; adding more color to establish more density or richness of color until the image is realized.
