Watercolor Landscape Painting: Studies from the Field

Watercolor Landscape Painting: Studies from the Field

Sun, August 1
Practice composition and color using watercolors in an inspiring outdoor setting!

Learn how to see a good composition and nature’s colors.

Beginners or experienced painters will enjoy working on two landscapes (or more!) outdoors. Joan will demonstrate how to begin a painting, how to see the colors and lay down the paint. She will work individually with each participant through out the day.

Group critiques let us learn from each other. Join in!

Joan Hoffmann paints in oils and watercolors and works with woodblock prints. She has a special relationship with her students and teaching at Pt Reyes National Seashore, and has been teaching through PRNSA for twenty years. Joan works together with students to bring out their creativity, make dynamic paintings or woodblocks, and use color to connect with the landscapes which inspire them.
