With your host John

Join Gabriel for the prelude to his full, 2-3 hour workshop webinar. He will teach you a quick simple drawing technique and will introduce you to his technique of using watercolours in such a way to always get spirit into your paintings.

Preparation for Short Class: Have your watercolour paper taped down on a movable surface. Gabriel uses ¾ inch masking tape on a sheet of wood. Paper size is 7x10 inches vertical format, you may draw in the building structure, not the tree (if you have time).
