The Five Minute Landscape (Oakland)

January 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm PST

In this workshop we  will explore landscape drawing on the run- how to draw and paint a landscape in five minutes or less, while standing up, in wet weather. Learn how to see basic shapes, simplify values, and discard unecessary detail. I will demonstrate several techniques including water soluable pen, aquash pencil, limited palette watercolor, Tombo pen, and  graphite pencil.
