The participants will learn how to create an image of chosen subjects, such as a cut crystal bowl with florals, Koi pond water, or Silver pots in watercolor with a step by step process.

To speed up the class exercise, Soon Y Warren will provide a reference photo and drawing for the group exercise. Following a painting demonstration, workshop participants will do their own painting in order to fully understand the process. While concentrating on technique, the concept of color theory, composition, and color values will be incorporated into the workshop.
