In this workshop, Dan Shanahan will guide you through the process of creating a portrait with watercolor, starting with laying out your image by drawing, and completing your work using watercolor to place lights and darks to carefully create depth.

You can find Dan Shanahan at Open Figure Drawing every week, using either watercolor or pastel.

Everson will provide the material needed for the class but asks that students supply their own brushes. Students are free to bring their own other watercolor material as well. See the list below for Dan’s suggested supplies.
