234-Watercolor Landscape Step-By-Step

Students are led through a step-by-step process of creating a painting each week. The instructor stresses the thinking behind what is being done and the reasons for doing things in a proper sequence. Students concentrate on seeing and controlling values, arriving at a simple formula to start a painting and proceeding in a logical process to finish a work. All students focus on the same subject and solve the same problems, with room for freedom of style in color choice.
