En plein air with Katya Popova

You are here

“En plein air" with Katya Popova. On color, space and time with watercolor from observation in nature.

How to translate the reality of three dimensional space onto a two dimensional page? How to work fast to catch the moment? How to simplify and find your own language to represent the complexity of what you are seeing? How to do all of it, with lines and color? We will try to answer some of these questions in the course of a one-hour video workshop!

In this online workshop, I want to offer the experience of being immersed in a Vermont landscape, working from observation with watercolor.

This workshop is open to anyone with the interest, independent of their skill level.
