How to Paint Outdoors in Watercolour Workshop

Tue Jul 27, 7:00 - 9:00 PM (EDT)

Oh oh, the sky is changing AGAIN! How do I deal with aerial perspective?

There are so many colours, how do I choose? How do I retain clean colour?

Should I work in zones? How much detail and information should I put in and where? How do I find the center of interest out in the field? Should I set up in the sun or in the shade and why? Should I work from large to small shapes or small to large shapes? How large should I work? Where should I go to paint? What is painting outdoors good for? What time should I paint outdoors? What should I pack? Do I really need to plan ahead or just fly by the seat of my pants?

Should I go alone? Is it okay to start with a watercolour journal? Do I need an easel?
