Eric Wiegardt addresses his students most common questions about creating better, looser watercolor paintings from photographs.
Connecting Shapes - In Connecting Shapes, Eric demonstrates in this video how to paint through the boundaries of objects to create new shapes. Through this process major design concepts are discussed; such as, creative edge quality, reflected light, better and larger shape construction, and how to avoid annoying "halos". This video will enable one to create loose and expressive watercolors from a design standpoint. Watch as the painting unfolds into a loosely defined painting, tying the shapes together.
