Also covered in this course are the characteristics of watercolor transparent paint, color mixing, basic brushstrokes, painting techniques and differences in watercolor paper. Students will also learn about the artist Georgia O'Keeffe and her abstract flowers. Students will create a finished painting to emulate Georgia O'Keeffe's style.
We will use the techniques learned to create a finished painting.
If weather permits we will be painting outdoors. Plein air painting is the practice of painting landscapes or impressions of the outdoors while working in the open air.
Plein air artists are known for capturing the natural light, color and movement of their subject matter.
