Sep 11  – Quick Draw with Carla Flegel 

So many are spooked by the thought of drawing the subject you want to paint. With this method it is easy to adjust some of the shapes as you add layers of paint and inking to the drawing. We will practice a few simple scenes so you are confident using the techniques. NO EXPERIENCE with drawing or using watercolour is necessary.
