About the Class:

Come and enjoy an afternoon of plein air painting at the beautiful Canham Farm Horse Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Scottsvalley, California.

In this workshop you will learn how to take notes and sketches of the place by developing your observation skills. You will also familiarize yourself with the use of tone and values on your sketches that later on will help you develop the final painting. Also you will learn about light and shadows and how to simplify the scene. Horses can be added to the scene in a simplified manner and I will show you how to easily sketch them by using the shapes method of painting. This is a wonderful opportunity to paint pictures of horses with the beautiful backdrop of the Santa Cruz mountains, redwoods and stables in the company of fellow artists.

Location: 333 Canham Rd, Scotts Valley, CA 95066
