Description

Ever thought about creating a nature journal? In this 4 session class we will meet each day at Turning Basin Park in Princeton to paint the landscape along the canal and study the plant life along path.  You'll learn how to create a balanced composition across 2 pages in a sketchbook, how to choose and mix colors to match those in nature, how to capture the gesture of the trees, water and plants, and how to best use watercolor as a sketching medium.
