Capture the unique sensation of summer light on Southamptons inspiring landscape with the luminous, liquid qualities of watercolor! Live outdoor demonstrations by 92Y Instructor, Wennie Huang, followed by individual guidance and instruction will introduce and expand plein air watercolor techniques and strategies for both the novice and the experienced painter. Working wet-on-wet out of doors, mixing colors with a limited palette, composition and sequencing of landscape elements, creating texture and atmospheric perspective as well as many other key points will be explained and explored.
