Watercolor Plein Air Painting with Mary Laury

Sunday, October 17 – 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Rain date: Sunday, October 24

Plein Air painting at Wonsqueak:  We will paint the lovely little harbor at Wonsqueak. Sky,water, rocks, trees, and some fall colored underbrush. Painting outdoors can be daunting, so we will discuss how to pack light and how to focus your view to contain your subject. We will start with a demo and then paint our own vision.
