"Painting in Spain: Travel Sketching in Watercolor"
September 10-17, 2022
 

The best thing about our itinerary for travel sketching in Spain is the sheer breadth of subjects to choose from — that, and the near-magical light and colour of this unique part of the world. In our week together I’ll teach you techniques for capturing the close-up and colourful in villages and towns, as well as the distant and scenic on the magical coast of Costa Brava. We’ll sketch the sea, majestic cliffs, boats, a botanical garden, a castle, a medieval village, etc… In true travel sketching tradition, we’ll pack light — carrying a small bag for art materials and a folding stool (that will be provided). This workshop is designed to give you confidence sketching wherever you are.
