This class is for people who have had a basic introduction to watercolor painting or have a regular practice. In each class watercolor painter Ellen Santoni will offer one or two techniques with practice activities. This way you can grow your repertoire of skills and increase your joy in the magical process of painting with watercolors. We will work both indoors and outdoors depending on the weather, and enjoy painting in the company of others. You don’t have to have extensive experience with watercolor painting to take this class. You need to bring a small set of supplies to the class (see list below). Ellen Santoni has been making art for as long as she can remember. She has a BFA in illustration. After college she had a 42-year career in marketing and advertising. Four years ago, she moved to Whidbey Island and restarted her journey with art. Watercolor is her chosen medium and her only medium. She says: “I love the unpredictability, the way the colors mix and blur, and the fluidity of the process. Ellen is a member of Whidbey Island Sketchers and Bellingham Sketchers, and she takes classes at Create Space and with local artists.
