Let’s travel virtually to Europe for the summer vacation. Keiko will take you step by step to create 2 fun subjects that are colorful and full of life. Her quick, simple approach is perfect to capture the essence and practical to prepare you for future sketching trips.
In this interactive class, Keiko will use her own motifs and show her process from composition in pencil to the watercolor painting, through a step-by-step demo each day. Q&A and critique is an integral part of the lessons on both days. Reference photos will be provided prior to the start of class.
