Learn to paint expressively loose, splashy watercolor landscapes in this three-day in-person workshop. By breaking down the landscape into components, you will identify and suggest shapes while loosening up brushstrokes. Lessons on composition, value, edges, and color study will be demonstrated and practiced throughout each day. Referring initially to the instructor’s photos and then interpreting your own references, you will begin to learn the tools to expressively interpret the landscape on your own.

About Sarah: Sarah can be found creating acrylic and watercolor landscapes from her studio in Terrebonne, Oregon.
