Join other students, beginning and beyond, in outdoor excursions to enjoy watercolor painting and artistic camaraderie. Russel will provide training in controlling watercolor media and tonal drawing, re-creating the appearance of nature with the understanding of forms and their surrounding elements. The study of perspective, composition, value and color will play as our foundation. All levels are welcome. Class location will be discussed weekly.
