Learn to paint with watercolour and other water-based techniques using wood as a canvas
Watercolor and paper always go hand in hand, but what happens when we apply it to other supports such as wood? Katherine Dossman, painter and illustrator, has the answer. After 9 years dedicated to his artistic work, he has developed a water painting technique, with watercolor and acrylic, on wood that has taken his pieces to galleries in Argentina, Brazil and the United States.
In this course you will learn to use watercolor and other techniques on water on wood, to get the most out of color and material from the hand of a specialist.
What's included in this course?
The first thing you will do is meet Katherine Dossman, her professional and artistic career, how she became 100% dedicated to illustration and, also, her main influences.
You will know the material you need to detail to use the technique, including the types of wood, pigments and extra materials or optional to work.
You will plan your illustration to make it come true. First you will see the types of sketch by level of complexity. You will make a color palette, defining colors, ranges and consistencies that you will use in watercolor, acrylic and pastel. Then you will learn to trace your sketch to the wood without spots.
Once you have everything ready, you will learn to apply the technique by individually painting the areas that go in watercolor and those that go in acrylic. You will see how to do the scraping and sanding of the support and finally, you will use the pastel chalk to create shading and apply the varnish for final protection.
At the end, you will have made an illustration on wood, combining techniques of watercolors and acrylic making the best use of the support.

You will make an original final work of 30 x 20 centimeters on a wooden plate applying all the techniques learned.
