The great outdoors near Anderson Ranch is our source material for drawings and paintings in water-based media, primarily ink and gouache. Each day we drive to a different site to draw directly from nature, concentrating on close-up images of flowers, rocks and other natural species, as well as long-distance vistas of mountains and valleys. We work with single sheets of paper and notebooks. Students are encouraged to build larger compositions back in the studio from their “field notes.”
