Free Virtual Watercolor Drop-In with Hema: Beach Crowds

July 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Drop in to a free, hour-long watercolor session with ACP teaching artist Hema Bharadwaj.

Let’s paint beach crowds! Summery days are coming and it might be fun to sit on warm sands under a cool umbrella with a paint box. Here is one way I tackle complex shapes and get the crowd vibe without painting all those hands and legs (LOL!) These inspiration paintings are from an early beach series and are sold — let’s use them as a point of inspiration for this year’s beach weather paintings.  


  • For this image, you can use Canson paper (I use cheap paper when I’m painting fast and messy on the beach)
  • Use all your colors! You can use your Buff Titanium for the sand or try some watered down burnt sienna with permanent rose.
  • Paper towels
  • Water jars
  • A variety of brushes is great but mostly a few rounds will do
  • White gouache for mixing highlights
  • Lots of mixing space in your palette
  • Optional: water spray bottle for creating drama

This virtual opportunity is open to all skill levels, whether you’re a returning student of Hema’s or a true beginner! 

Interested in the medium but not ready to dive in? You’re more than welcome to attend and observe, get to know Hema, and plan for future watercolor exploration.
