Spring Plein Air Watercolor Class
With plein air painting the goal is to capture the scene quickly and watercolor is perfectly suited for this purpose. Within an hours time your subjects lighting will have changed completely. Watercolor is ideal for this quick interpretation of a subject. In this workshop we will try to get out and experience plein air painting and all of the fun and all of the challenges that goes with it. I will share with you methods and techniques that I have found helpful to me in painting out doors in the open air. On days that weather doesn’t allow for painting outside, we will work inside on still life or reference photos provided. This watercolor workshop is for the beginner as well as for the experienced artist.
