Is there an abstract watercolour class on PB? I could'nt find one but maybe there is one planned for the future? (I know there is one in oils that just started).
Or, if I watch the one for oils, would there be a lot of carry over I could use for watercolour? Thanks!

Can't wait to see Dennis slapping down that Texture Paste on the old 300gsm...

 :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

Seriously though Denise, what Nolan taught was a "how to think Abstract" lesson. The medium is irrelevant. Donkey hair glued to a paper bag with a splash of red and green paint can be considered abstract...

If you think past the medium and just apply the principles, it's wouldn't be too hard a leap to do an abstract in watercolours. Although that texture paste might cause an issue, but then again... isn't art about experimentation?
