Thank you David Rankin and the Euclid Art Association for another great Watercolor Workshop!
David Rankin is a well known wildlife watercolorist and Art instructor. The Euclid Art Association is fortunate enough to have him instruct our group for a couple of times per year. Our workshop began by painting value studies and discussing the importance of taking the time to paint them before diving head first into a painting. By the time we began our final painting using color, all of the kinks had been worked out! I know this is so elementary….however, I know I need to implement this practice on a regular basis. Above are some of the steps we used to complete the value study. They really do make a huge difference in the finished work.
