There is a treasure-trove of subjects for watercolorists hidden in the quiet corners of nature. In our haste, we may pass by and not consider the countless small, magical subjects--the delicate tracery of weeds and grasses, the shapes and colors of wildflowers nestled among stones, the textural patterns of tree trunks or a grouping of small, colorful rocks. The possibilities are endless and waiting patiently for us! These intimate glimpses of natural beauty provide a whole range of subject matter. In this six-week session we will explore a close-up glimpse of nature and practice a variety of techniques and compositional possibilities. This session requires basic knowledge and skills of watercolor painting. Photos and template for class studies will be provided by the instructor, and students are encouraged to bring their own photos and reference material. Inspirational guidance is provided by the philosophical framework of the Tao Te Ching and from others who share their creative journey. Pre-registration is required.
