Pocket Sized Landscapes Workshop

Join us at the UCSC Arboretum and learn how to paint miniature landscapes from life in this afternoon workshop. We’ll practice techniques for distilling the landscape down to its essential components and learn how to compose a scene with UCSC’s tree lined meadows for inspiration. We’ll cover brush handling, color mixing and various watercolor techniques so you’ll have the tools you need for painting landscapes on the go. This quick and loose practice is great for hiking, traveling, journaling, and recording the landscape when you don’t have a lot of time. The pocket landscapes can serve as inspiration for larger paintings back home and often are beautiful little gems on their own. The event will be led by local artist Erika Perloff. Register here.
