The Hidden Valley of Point Reyes: Thumbnail Sketching
Sunday, June 29, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Join us for a day in the field at a rarely visited Point Reyes hidden valley for field sketching. The class will also retreat to a beautifully restored farm house, usually off-limits to the public for more in depth conversation and critique. In the morning participants will work on small studies and see how to scale elements of a painting by drawing studies which we call “Thumbnail Sketching”. In the afternoon, each participant will work independently on a larger painting working from their morning studies. All sketching, drawing and paint mediums welcome: watercolors, acrylics or oils. Learn how to compose a thumbnail sketch and paint a landscape in the field. All levels welcome.
