Cezanne was a French and Post-Impressionist painter. He is known best for his intensely beautiful oil paintings, but did you know that he was also a watercolorist?! The impressionists referred to him as “the father of us all”. In this class we’ll learn more about the master, and I’ll show you a technique I’ve developed that helps us to mimic his oil paintings in watercolor! To achieve that “Cezanne flair” we will work from dark to light…a classic oil painting approach. This class will grow your skills as well as your appreciation for Cezanne’s beautiful artwork. Come, be inspired!

- A black watercolor crayon– I will be using a Stabilo woody crayon in black. A Black watercolor pencil could also be used as a substitute.
