Join artist Devon Burke and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum as we explore watercolor techniques utilized to paint mini natural landscapes of the southwest. In this intermediate painter level course we will walk you through color matching, highlighting, shading, and detailing smaller sized works depicting scenes of O’Keeffe’s most loved areas of New Mexico. In the first hour, participants will be shown a live O’Keeffe inspired landscape painting by the instructor with tips and guidance for working both in small format and with watercolor detail. In the second hour participants will be given the opportunity to an open studio working experience to either begin a landscape of personal choice or to further develop the example provided from the instructor demonstration. Devon will be available for small windows of instruction to guide your work and provide feedback.

Supplies you will need:

  • watercolor paints
  • round paintbrush
  • watercolor or drawing paper
