Learn how to make water look wet, reflective, and splashy! With a stunning waterfall or intimate woodsy creek as your model, study water in motion and glassy reflection. Painting water that looks wet requires some basic knowledge of the dynamics of how water moves and how objects are reflected in its mirror surface. Techniques will be demonstrated to address the various puzzles with which the artist is faced when painting this stunning, fascinating, and challenging subject!
