The Mountain Landscape in Watercolour with Elaine Hughes

Sun, April 15, 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

Join Elaine and learn some of the basics of putting together a successful post-impressionist mountain painting.

She will discuss sky and cloud formations, sculpting the peaks, the using the white of the paper to create snow, the importance of cast shadows, atmospheric perspective, and creating the mid-ground, and foreground options. Both wet on wet and direct painting with transparent and opaque watercolours will be demonstrated, as well as negative painting techniques.

Space is limited and registration is required.
