"Discover the transformative power of working with an exclusively mineral based watercolor palette. We will explore the effects of watercolor pigments created from pure minerals. The result is stunning flowing effects, that unite sedimentation, and hold the unique energy and properties of the crystal itself. The gemstone paints flow together and move with the water in an, unpredictable way. It is equal science, geology, chemistry and alchemy all at once. Applied to a smooth synthetic paper, the water does the rest. In this two part course we will discover the unique properties of key gemstones and minerals, create moving semi abstract works and learn the power of inaction, patience… and a great crop! Come and explore the power of earth's most beautiful gifts."
