Watercolor is an exciting medium; it flows and moves and does beautiful things. If you have never painted in watercolors we will start at the beginning. If you have painted before, you will pick up some new tips and tricks as well. We all learn together!
We'll begin with a demo and lesson. Weather permitting, we will go outside for plein air painting. We will do studies of sky, water, and rocks, culminating in a finished painting (or two) of a seascape. Materials will be provided but bring what you have.
- workshop tuition includes all meals prepared for everyone by the cooking class
- Mary will call each participant to discuss materials, details and answer questions
Please note: Included in the registration is a $40 non-refundable fee should you have to cancel.
