We'll be sketching and painting from nature, using pencil, pen and watercolor. Learn new skills or develop ones you already have. Roxanne Steed will show you how to simplify what you see and teach basic drawing and quick intuitive watercolor techniques. Enhance your creativity, observe nature, record the day and enjoy the meditative qualities of sketching and painting with watercolor.
