Creating pastoral landscapes using atmospheric color

September 16, 2023

ANA Gallery @ Rogers Experimental House
121 W. Walnut Street
Rogers, AR 72756

This is the first class in intermediate watercolor with an emphasis on landscapes.  We will use the fundamental techniques and skills as developed in the introductory course previously offered to create effective perspective and depth in peaceful scenes utilizing basic color theory as experienced in real world applications.

Course Supplies List (student provided)


Materials available for watercolor artistry vary immensely in quality and durability.  While while attempting to keep the expense of materials down to a reasonable level for a beginning watercolorist, consideration must be given to the artists’ satisfaction with the finished compositions created.  Therefore, “brand names” are provided in order to ensure quality and durability of a satisfactory level.  Because the ultimate finished artwork could suffer from the use of inferior grade materials, these “brand names” are suggested but NOT required.  Each student should decide for themselves as to the quality versus expense requirement for their own painting.  Cost is duly considered herein where possible.  These are suggested minimums.  Upgraded materials are acceptable, of course.
