Ron Thurston

I hope it’s true when they say watercolor is the difficult medium. This keeps it exciting and not for everyone. Practicing starts with a stroke of the brush and a follow trough, like the strum of a guitar or the shooting of a basket. My classes begin with the basics of brushes, paints, and paper and move into that all important design and composition. Watch how your painting, abstract or otherwise, will come alive when the foundation is exciting. Each day different topics will be discussed or demonstrated. Personal expression is encouraged. Lessons are designed to explore color and compositional possibilities to spark ordinary subjects into eye catching visuals. Dive right in. Ask questions. A casual friendly atmosphere makes the class a fun and rewarding adventure.
