Watercolor Using Decalcomania

with Linda Murray


Decalcomania is a technique that was first used by the surrealists to make fine art images.This technique is fun and playful, allowing the student to work spontaneously. It can be used to create trees, landscapes, flowers, abstract images or even portraitures using watercolor and plastic wrap. Decalcomania provides wonderful texture which we will learn to develop further once it's dry. For the beginner, it is advised to use a tree or stump as your subject; one with interesting bark, moss and gnarly roots is a good choice. For this class we are only concerned with the bottom portion of the tree. We will not be painting foliage. Bring your reference photos in if you want to paint a tree or landscape. There will be a demo of creating a tree and landscape during the first class. Class is 6 sessions. Materials list will be provided upon registration. Participants should already be comfortable painting with watercolors to get the most out of this experience.
