Paint the Town: Emerald Plaza with David Peterson
Saturday, February 26, 2022
FEES: $45 workshop, $10 materials (optionally paid at workshop)
About the Workshop
Students of all levels will come to this workshop prepared to paint Emerald Plaza subjects outdoors, or at least sketch outdoors and paint later in the classroom from sketches. Don’t want to paint this shopping center, bring a sketch from life of your favorite subject. 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!
Students will bring the watercolor kit they normally use, prepared to paint half-sheet sized paintings. If you are new to water-color you may arrange to a pay a $10 fee for paper and paint and use the instructor’s palettes and brushes. Please notify David Peterson at www.aquacolorist.com to reserve materials. Payment for materials can be made at the workshop.
