This course will introduce you to different watercolor techniques, such as painting on dry and wet paper, conveying the volume and showing the shape of objects, arranging objects in different formats, vertical and horizontal, and selecting a suitable palette. During the learning process, students will work with objects traditionally included in still life: flowers, fruits, vases and draperies, moving from simple figures to more complex ones.
