Sandra will cover choosing a subject and the important fundamentals of composition, values, center of interest, color of light, and atmospheric perspective.

Bring your supplies in the medium of your choice. Include a small folding chair, dress for the weather. Also include a hat, umbrella, or visor, sun screen, bug spray, drinking water or beverage, and a bag lunch. After the demo we will break for lunch. Artists will then choose their own painting site.
