Shelley Freese: SLOPPY POPPY


Watercolor on Clay-Surface Board. This is a great class for beginning painters as well as for anyone hesitant about trying traditional watercolor on paper.  We’ll start by tracing a black-line master-- no drawing experience necessary!


The board surface is a thin coat of white kaolin clay on a Masonite backing.  That means no buckling, tearing, shredding, or pilling.  You can work the surface over in a way that would make watercolor paper curl up and die.  You can make mistakes—and fix them.  You can change your mind and remove (most) of a color.  You can build up color with multiple glazes. 


Come paint some summertime poppies and learn about this amazing surface!
