VIRTUAL: Beginning Watercolor Painting – G211042V October 25-28

This online watercolor class is an all-level class. However, beginners will receive the very basics. How to ‘control the paint or let it ‘flow’, color mixing and compositions will be covered. We will spend four mornings on one landscape from the beautiful Ghost Ranch, beginning with the simple structure and building up to the complicated vegetation. The photo will be emailed to all registrants.

Come and paint in a very supportive atmosphere. Painting the ranch is the next best thing to being there!
