'Keep it simple and Strong' with Keiko Tanabe

Updated: Jan 2

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.
