What could be greater than being out-of-doors and painting the beauty surrounding you? This one-day workshop is an introduction to painting on location in watercolor. You will learn what materials are needed and how to begin painting from life. After completing this workshop, you will feel confident enough to paint sitting before a grand landscape, or in your humble backyard. In the morning, we will learn the basic watercolor techniques and steps of painting a landscape. The emphasis will be on simplifying the design with a thumbnail value sketch and distinguishing background, middle ground, and foreground. These studies will be small 5x7 paintings from photos and looking out the studio window. In the afternoon, we will go outside and apply these principles to produce a larger painting. No experience necessary. All supplies included.
Level: Introductory through Advanced
