Class Description
    In David's Koi Joy workshop you will explore in the medium of watercolor, the incredibly beaurtiful ballet-
    like motions and grace of koi, using bright expresive colors and new and exciting paint application
    techniques. You will use adjunct tools and mediums that range from stencils and pipettes to conte crayon
    and chalk markers. David will provide preworkshop directions so you arrive with your subjects ready to
    paint. He will provide you with pre-workshop tracings and directions on how to transfer subjects to
    11X15", quarter sheets of watercolor paper. He will provide the photo references, though you are welcome
    to bring your own if you like. These are the photo references we will use during the painting process.

    Each watercolor will be created using wet-on-wet and wet-on dry techniques with emphasis on using a
    cat's tongue, round and flat brushes. Individual and groupings of Koi will be rendered exploiting the curving
    and bending motions of these mesmerizine creatures.
