The late autumn landscape is beautiful and intriguing in its juxtaposition of lingering bright fall colors against the subtleties of dried grasses and bare branches. The tendency is to paint it all brighter and harsher than it should be. Learn to mix the sophisticated colors of fall and make your landscape more believable–filled with the mystery and majesty of the season. Each class starts with a lesson, demonstration and written materials; followed by plenty of painting time with ample personal attention. Coffee and snacks provided. Please bring a bag lunch. dianeduboismullaly.com Minimum 6, Maximum 15. email@example.com
