Maine Coast: Watercolor Travel Sketchbook
Maritime details near and far.
- Amy Hosa—September 2–8
Fill a sketchbook with colorful memories while learning how to draw quick studies that capture the essence of coastal Maine. Each day we’ll travel to new locations – boatyards, harbors, lobster wharves, quaint towns, islands, fields of wildflowers, and the rocky shore. Drawing from life not only gives you time to discover details, but also creates a sensory record of that place and time.
The goal of this course is for you to master “what you see,” record that vision on paper as a quick-study sketch, then transform it into a watercolor painting or a finished drawing. Instruction includes pen and pencil and watercolor techniques, focusing on how to draw architecture, trees, the shoreline, piers, boats and people. Amy offers multiple step-by-step demonstrations each day that address a range of skills from basic drawing, composition, and perspective and color for the novice to more challenging techniques for the advanced. Each student will also receive individual attention and demos.
