Bowen Arts Center


During this 2 day workshop, you will learn how to layer and work with watercolors on gold metallic watercolor ground. Work on a variety of surfaces, wood, canvas, cardboard or matt board and a dried leaf. The wonderful thing about watercolor-ground is that it turns most any surface into watercolor ready. Join us to explore this illuminating process.

Supplies needed

  • Watercolors come in many brands and in a range of prices. I like these for painting on location they are larger sets but great color.  Pelikan Transparent Watercolor Paint Set, 24 Colors  –  Pelikan Opaque Watercolor Paint Set, 24 Colors
  • Brushes-A mix of Round, Flat and Angle. I prefer and Angle brush as it can do many things.
