This plein air workshop demonstrates the unique qualities of painting a landscape out in the open, using the natural light available. It will include understanding and controlling your brushwork; the control of watercolour and watercolour techniques; and understanding tonal values in one and two colours. Using a step-by-step approach in composition, tonal value and colour selection you will be able to paint using a limited palette to create a mood in your paintings. It will prepare you to plan, choose your own palette and paint on your own.
