Do you find yourself struggling to carry a bulging field bag, filled with too many supplies you almost never use? Are you sometimes hamstrung because it takes you so long to set up your sketching gear that you don’t stop and capture small and delightful details? This class will be like a diet for your field sketching kit! Roseann has been keeping nature journals for 40 years, and has refined her gear to a light-and-fast stand-up field sketching kit comprising her easy-to-make (and inexpensive) field journal, a fountain pen, a single brush, and a mini paint kit with cyan, magenta, yellow, burnt sienna, and a dark blue (indanthrone). She’ll share her ideas and get you started with easy color-mixing with just 3-5 colors. Lighten your load, de-clutter your gear, and focus on what you love: observing, sketching, and painting.

SUPPLIES: Journal, pen, brush, and watercolors. For this class I use transparent, mostly cool colors (all Daniel Smith): manganese blue hue or cerulean; quinacridone rose; aureolin or chrome yellow (neutral yellow); burnt sienna; indanthrone blue (dark, warm blue).
