In this ArtistsNetwork.TV (http://www.ArtistsNetwork.TV) video workshop, Painting Cascading Water: Watercolor Unleashed with Julie Gilbert Pollard (http://artistsnetwork.tv/p-275-painting-cascading-water-watercolor-unleashed-with-julie-gilbert-pollard.aspx), you'll learn to use spattering, salt, gesture, negative painting and playful color to keep your paintings fresh and loose, all while concentrating on a variety of soft and hard edges and a pattern of values to keep the painting realistic. By the end of this video, you’ll not only understand the way water flows intellectually, but you will be able to portray the feeling of water, whether it be splashes and frothy churning water, rivulets of water cascading between rocks, or reflections in quiet, still water.

In this preview Julie paints cascading water—the rivulets, foam and spray—paying attention to values, edges and brush direction. Visit ArtistsNetwork.TV (http://www.ArtistsNetwork.TV) for access to the full-length video.
