Plein Air Watercolor Series
Thursdays, November 3- 17, December 1-15

Artist Robert Sherrill leads a six-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.
