By Cindy Briggs

Paint the sun-drenched beach of your wintertime dreams. Working with watercolors, capture the color and light of the village of Carmel-by-the-Sea—with its cypress trees, Old World architecture, and flowers and vines reaching up toward the sky. Learn color mixing, balancing highlights and shadows, and how to achieve the perfect paint consistency. Tips and techniques for taking your painting plein air (when the weather allows) will also be covered. All levels welcome.

This class will be recorded. Please see our FAQ for recording terms and conditions.
