Drawing landscapes can be awesome and overwhelming. Clare will show you simple ways to break down the essential elements of a landscape that you can happily accomplish in varying amounts of time, whether 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 2 hours. Field sketching of a landscape can include words and just a small diagram. Lengthier landscape drawings entail more consideration of perspective, pencil markings, the "language" of drawing trees, rocks, grasses, water etc. The use of color -- colored pencil and watercolor -- in the field will be covered.( As Clare's training is European, equipment she used in the field is minimal and practical.) Local guide extraordinaire David Wimpfheimer will join the group to as an expert naturalist in the Pacific Grove landscape.
