Watercolor Landscapes with Architectural Elements (ONLINE)

Watercolor Landscapes with Architectural Elements (ONLINE)
Tuesday, May 4, 2021


Tuesdays, May 4-25 (4 week series)

The line quality and shapes of architectural subjects are a wonderful counterpoint to those of nature, and they provide a frame of reference about the location and scale of the landscape in a painting. Jane Skafte will cover the basics of perspective and how it works as the foundation for being able to paint believable architectural subjects and will include demonstrations on how to create a variety of textures. Prime Members free, Standard Members and Guests 45.00. 

Closer to the class, Jane will email you with the Zoom link.
