The color palette of Winter reveals itself in the vistas of the Laguna de Santa Rosa and Mt. St. Helena, as well as in the close-up study of shrubs and trees. Join Kristin as you learn to mix a full range of colors from a simple palette of eight harmonious pigments, followed by hands-on aids to help you create depth in your landscapes and close-up sketches. You will also spend time writing, which combines with your sketching to bring to life the memory of your day in nature. The beautiful Heron Hall classroom at the Laguna Environmental Center offers the opportunity to work rain or shine with its huge picture windows and outdoor overhangs. This class is suitable for beginners to experienced artists, adults and teens 16 years and older.
Kristin Meuser has been painting the land for over 35 years. Several years ago her love of nature led her to the Sierra Nevada Field Campus where she studied nature journaling with Jack Laws, watercolor with Andie Thrams, and writing with Sarah Rabkin. Kristin’s career as a graphic designer gives her journal pages a sense of structured variety and a delightfully cohesive overall effect. She has been teaching watercolor nature journaling for the past 5 years privately and at art and retreat centers in California. Her work is found in private collections, it has been shown regionally, and has been represented by the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite. For more information, visit her website.
