Instructor: Gail Browne, 4 – 7pm
This course is designed to foster spontaneity in the artist searching for “color truth”. Watercolor demands an instinctual response to the subject and we will begin with a series of quick studies of masses. We will progress to more observational studies and finalize our work with a completed piece. There will be a demonstration from the instructor at each step. Individual communication and group discussion is encouraged.
