Students of all levels will come to this workshop prepared to paint outdoors, or at least sketch outdoors and paint later in the class room from sketches. We will paint Old Town Elk Grove subjects. David will present a brief lecture followed by a demo. After the demo the class will work outdoors making a design sketch and then paint a half sheet watercolor. David will be available for personal assistance. We will finish up with our paintings in the studio and will assemble for a critique 30 minutes before dismissal. The point of the class is to practice painting fast and loose from life!
