"Watercolor Landscape: The Complete Approach to Working Loosely en Plein Air" with Alex Sharma (April 2024)

The complete approach to working loosely
En Plein Air

with Alex Sharma 

Thursdays (1 to 4pm)

April 18, 25, 2024

The Coastal Discovery Museum at Historic Honey Horn
(70 Honey Horn Drive, Hilton Head Island, SC)


Get inspired at the grounds of the Coastal Discovery Museum at Historic Honey Horn as we paint on site each afternoon. There are wonderful marsh vistas, beautiful flowers, old homestead buildings and stables, along with some of South Carolina's oldest trees.

We will meet on site and choose a new vista each class. Alex will start the class with a demonstration on what to look for and how to compose the scene in a loose, balanced and lively manner. Lessons focus on the basics of transparent watercolor with emphasis on creativity and a unique point of view. Work at your own pace. Individual attention and critiques are an integral part of this course, which is suitable for intermediate and advanced level watercolor painters.

This course is designed for intermediate and advanced watercolor students.

Ticket purchases to Art League of Hilton Head events are final. Refunds will not be given for missed or classes/workshops.
