Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned artist, this workshop will explore the fun and free expression watercolor can bring to painting the landscape. John will guide the artist through a brief demo and set up. Instruction will be in working from light to dark, color and control of the water and paint. The workshop will explore using a few brushes to get to most out of the paint.  Mostly painting on location instruction on basic understanding of wet into wet techniques are applied. Watercolor can be a challenging medium but with a little understanding, it can be one of the most exciting mediums.
