Daniel Bowler
The focus of this two-hour structured session is "speed" and "form", i.e. capturing the essence of a subject. You will be guided to complete some "warm-up" colour and drawing exercises and prepared for doing ink and watercolour-based painting in the session. You will learn how to quickly sketch and capture multiple subjects in the garden with ink and wash technique. You will be advised to keep things rather loose and time your drawing/painting.

Title or Location: Golden Hour on the Tower
One of our favorite places to watch the sunset is in front of this tower at Nokomis Beach. This painting started as a small watercolor plein air sketch. I really enjoyed it and wanted to do a larger painting in oil of that magical moment when there are just a few fleeting seconds of light left. The light changes dramatically, so I used a photograph as a reference to bring this painting to life.
