Learn to paint the summer landscape! Class covers important ideas in technique, color, and composition ideas for capturing the summer scene.


Use this Basic Watercolor Supplies and Materials list as a guide.

We’ll be working on 140lb Cold Press Paper for each project.  I recommend Arches 140lb Cold Press

There is an emphasis on mixing greens for summer landscape paintings.  The Basic Materials list includes two yellows: one cool and one warm, along with four blues : Cobalt, Ultramarine, Cerulean, and Indanthrene.   In addition to those, Quinacridone Deep Gold or Quinacridone Gold is a good addition.
