Plein Air Landscape in Watercolor, Ink and Gouache
Time : 10am-2pm
Instructor : Abigail Tulis
Sunday, May 27th • 10am- 2pm
Students in Plein Air in Watercolor, Ink and Gouache will be encouraged to study the whole of their surroundings, both landscape and architecture, as well as a selection of elements (leaves, flowers, roots) offering great detail.
The class will be divided into two sections with distinct goals for each.
The first 2 hours will be devoted to making a nature study of an object and the intricacies that make it interesting in and of itself.
The next 2 hours will be devoted to creating a composition that captures the whole landscape and echoes elements of the objects studied earlier, placing them in proper context.
As the workshop progresses, Tulis will discuss the basics of watercolor, ink and gouache, along with the usage some drawing materials.
In the even of rain, this workshop will meet at our new studio/gallery at 98 Project Space, at 98 Audrey Ave. Just across the street from our main studio. Students will work on studio studies n that scenario.
