In this class you will learn and practice how to use freshness, spontaneity and simplicity in watercolor painting. You will create interesting and "frameable" art in just eight hours. This course will dispel the myths about how hard watercolor is; even advanced artists can get a new, fresh perspective on ways to improve their art.

Annie Murphy Springer specializes in local landscapes that express exuberance and whimsy and is known for her affection of purples, maroons and mauves. She regularly teaches at Riley Street Artist's Supply in Santa Rosa.

More about Annie . . .

"I am a (mostly) self-taught watercolorist who has been painting seriously since 1986, specializing in local landscapes. I enjoy painting on-scene and trying to capture the beauty of the coast. I particularly enjoy trying to capture the sensuality or sweetness of a scene I've encountered."
