Award-Winning Watercolors: Plein Air
April 22 - May 27$240
Fridays 10:00am-12 noon | 5 Weekly Sessions
[No Class April 29th]
The Spring Session of Award-Winning Watercolors will head outdoors or in French, “Plein Air.” Rajendra will teach his style of painting that has won him many plein air competition awards.
Rajendra’s hands-on approach will help students learn to capture the transparent quality of watercolor in the painting of landscapes and still life. Working with a limited palette and carefully planning strokes and tonality, students will master the economical use of brush
and line to produce the needed effect without the fear of overworking the painting and will learn how to achieve crisp, clear color and create atmospheric effects. This class is for students with basic knowledge of watercolor painting. Scroll down for the Supply List
