Plein Air Watercolor Series
Thursdays, May 12- June 30
9 a.m.- Noon
Artist Robert Sherrill leads an eight-part course in plein air watercolor landscape painting. Paintings will be broken down to very simple components, including shrubs, paths, clouds, and flowers to form a more complete painting. Techniques in general color, basic shading, and basic perspective are explored. Sessions will be held outdoors in the gardens, where the scenery of The Huntington offers endless variety and inspiration.
