'Keep it simple and Strong' with Keiko Tanabe

On 22nd Sept '20, we were joined by professional artist Keiko Tanabe live from her studio in California, USA.


Keiko will use one of her travel photos as a reference (see below), to share some key points & useful tips to quickly capture the light and atmosphere using watercolour. Many watercolour techniques (wet-in-wet, wet-in-dry, dry-in-wet, dry-in-dry, etc.) will be demonstrated. It will be a nice prelude to the subsequent workshop webinar as you will be introduced to a creative process that allows you to make an impressionistic painting.
