We will all be working on the same portrait which Anne will supply. This class requires prior watercolor and drawing experience. Materials needed: Good quality watercolor paper, professional grade watercolors, a variety of *watercolor brushes (various rounds from size 2 to 12), pencil, eraser and a tracing paper pad.
