Drawing & Painting
This watercolor class will focus on the traditional landscape with painting demonstrations for skies, water, greenery, and buildings in a relaxed setting.
- 11"x15" Strathmore spiral pad of watercolor paper
- Set of watercolor paints: The cheap end is a Crayola children's snap tin or a nice quality set of Winsor - Newton small tube paints. Check to be sure your set includes a tube of Paynes Grey and find your price point between the two options. I demonstrate with the Crayola set and recommend rewarding yourself with better paints as you progress.
