Spontaneous Painting Wet-On-Wet

Spontaneous Painting Wet-On-Wet

Wednesdays, February 19, 26, March 4, 11; 10:30am - 1pm

Instructor: Carol Duchamp


Watercolor and Fluid Acrylic

This is a beautiful sequence of classes that moves us into the magical realm of wet-on-wet water-media painting. With focus on watercolor and fluid acrylic mediums, students will liberate their painting style; observe, explore, and guide the beauty of water and pigment mixing directly on the paper in order to achieve enhanced visual excitement in their work.

The class includes practice with degrees of wetness, brushwork, color saturation, rhythmic composition, visual interest, intuitive voice and expressivity. All levels of skill and painting styles are welcome.

We improvise with playful spirits, studying that which is not certain. Atmospheric and textual effects abound with this methodology, as do beautiful passages that appear to paint themselves. Your ‘inner artist’ will be given voice and learn to sing in new ways! Instruction is individualized. This is a form of process painting in which we engage with the moment rather than with a pre-conceived outcome. In this way, the true power and mystery of art-making combine with the feeling tone of our experiences to imbue our paintings with added meaning.

Carol Duchamp earned her MA in Sociology at the University of Strasbourg in France. She attended the MA program in Arts & Consciousness at JFKU in Berkeley and has taught water media painting classes for UCSC Extension, Art Trek, College of Marin Community Education and at her studio in Bolinas for over twenty years. She is an exhibiting artist with solo Bay Area shows at IONS in 2012 & Commonweal Gallery in 2013. Her work can best be accessed at:
