"Fall Aspen" watercolor painting by Maria Coryell-Martin

Glazing & Masking

Layer color and create texture in watercolor while using masking to maintain bright edges.

Online Workshop with Maria Coryell-Martin

Explore layered color and creating texture with watercolors while using tools for masking to maintain bright edges. We'll apply the technique to several compositions.

This workshop will take place via Zoom. I will send out the link to join the Zoom session a few days before the workshop, along with some images and notes for preparation. After our session, you will receive access to a recording for review, as well an invitation to a Facebook group for additional opportunities to connect.

I recommend having the following supplies:

  • Paper: you’ll want to use 140lb or heavier watercolor paper. I’ll be working on small pieces of Arches 140lb. cold-press watercolor paper, 4" x 6" and smaller. Please contact me if you need paper, I have limited packs available.
  • Watercolors: please feel free to paint with what you have! I’ll be painting with a combination of my Expeditionary Art Palette, and our Essential Colors Palette which includes six essential colors and is a great place to start if you are beginning.
  • Brushes: use what you have! I’ll demonstrate with travel and water brushes, which I like for their portability and convenience.
  • Extras: exacto-knife or razor blade, clear packing tape, pencil, eraser, paper towel, old toothbrush (optional), spray bottle (optional).

Please contact me if you need paper, I have limited packs available.
