Landscape Sketching in Watercolor and Gouache
with Nathan Fowkes

Landscape sketching can be one of the great pleasures for the working artist! This course will provide each student with the experience and understanding for organizing the complexities of the landscape into insightful compositions. We'll focus on capturing the immediacies of light, atmosphere and character of the landscape through location studies. I'll be demonstrating with watercolor and gouache as the preferred sketching medium but students will be welcome to use the medium of their choice. Each week will include a lecture and demonstrations that will guide students step by step through the process of landscape sketching from life. During our time together I'll take you through the practical application of:

- Setting up a no hassle painting kit for on the spot sketching.
- Finding a simple statement within the complexities of the landscape.
- Learning to work within the limitations of your medium and turn them into an advantage.
- Learning to find the subtleties of nature within a limited palette of color.
- Learning to control and best use a full palette of color.
- Understanding principles of landscape composition to best portray your subject.
- Applying the techniques of the impressionists within the confines of a 1 hour on location study.
- Creating the illusion of depth and space within the confines of your two dimensional study.
- Inspiration for sketching everywhere you go for practice, study and fun.
