Sundays in April I'm teaching a local plein air class specifically for beginners. This is a great way to learn the basics and test out some tools and learn techniques to get started working from life. I've broken down the lessons to have a specific focus each week. The first session was all about composition. With the use of a viewfinder, a preliminary sketch and thinking about the "golden mean", we worked out pleasing designs - and dealt with spring greens!
