Arguably one of the easiest and least understood ways to make your watercolor paintings stand out is through use of color. In this class you will be shown how to see new colors and how to apply them to your paintings.

During this two-day workshop, you will learn which colors are compatible with other colors and how to successfully use them to enhance your paintings. You will be shown colors you may not have seen before and learn to add compatible colors to give your painting a dramatic effect. You will learn a whole new vista of colors to add to your painting knowledge.

This is a 2-day Adult class.

    About Charles Passarelli

    Charles Passarelli worked as an advertising illustrator in two of the largest studios in the country located in the Detroit area. His commissions came from many sources as far west as California, as far east as Germany, as far north as Toronto and south as Florida. He taught advanced illustration at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, MI. While still working, he decided to leave behind the cold snowy winters of Michigan and move to Florida and freelance. When Charles decided to retire from advertising, he was able to take up his passion for watercolor.

    He has since won many awards including best watercolorist in the Delray Affair, Boynton Beach Gala, Pigeon Key Art Festival and is a signature member of the Florida Watercolor Society. Charles teaches watercolor classes at the Delray Beach Center for the Arts and conducts workshops in Michigan, Florida and the Florida Keys.
