Painting the Winter Landscape with Watercolor (W22-OL)

Instructor: Robert O'Brien

Paint the beautiful New England winter landscape in watercolor. The subtle tints of snow will be teased out using glazing techniques and layering, and you'll learn how to use tonal value, composition, light and shadow to capture your scene. Learn to create a finished painting using a photographic reference (provided a few days before the class begins). Robert O'Brien will demonstrate his approach and provide hands-on guidance to each student. This class will meet online via Zoom. Click here to download the class materials list.
