Join us for a single class or come every week. All levels are welcome.
Working from photographs (or outside ‘en plein air’ at Featherstone if the weather permits) we’ll examine all the elements that contribute to a successful landscape painting.
We’ll try to keep it simple and direct, using bigger brushes to capture the most important elements of a landscape, aiming for a bright impressionistic view with just the right amount of detail. Along the way, we’ll talk about color mixing, hard vs. soft edges, how to simplify a complex subject and how to stop worrying about making mistakes.
Bring a paper copy of your chosen photo, or an image on a tablet. Phone images are too small and usually too hard to work with.
a set of tube (soft) watercolors, artist’s grade is best but student grade ok, any brand is fine

pad of watercolor paper either 8x10 or 9x12
