Ever-Learning: Watercolor Master Class

So I've always wanted to take a master class on watercolor painting. I learned some techniques back in college and have just kept experimenting and developing since. But I don't feel I was ever taught well. But I don't feel I was ever taught well. I also really want to learn to paint landscapes better for this book idea I have. I finally made the time to take a 3-day course from a travelling professional, Carl Purcell. He's teaching a class at an art center close by next week. I'm excited.

Here's the info on the class...

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from nationally renowned watercolorist and author. Take your art to a new level when you understand the hidden order of patterns in nature. Everyone expresses a desire to “loosen up”, but loose is not how a painting is done. “Loose” is how a painting looks when instead of painting items, you paint the patterns we will cover in this
workshop, Paint with deliberation, and with a new freedom that will result in fresh, spirited paintings that seem to capture the vibrancy of nature. Even though this workshop is a watercolor workshop, the concept applies to any medium.

I admit, I'm also a little nervous. It's weird. I've been painting for years, but to go and actually paint in front of a "master" watercolorist, is nerve racking. I plan on just going in and approaching the class like I know nothing, follow all his instructions to the T, and hopefully emerge a better painter.

Here's to always learning and growing!
