An Imaginary Visit To The Beach

Come stroll along the water's edge, enjoy the warm sun and dig your toes in the sand!

Come and enjoy found treasures on the beach, the waves rolling in at sunset, the colorful structures found along the beachside as well as the boardwalks that lead to a small bit of paradise!

We'll learn all about sketching quickly, finishing our pages, suggesting details and textures, what to leave in and what we can do without. Learning and improving our drawing skills while we enjoy the sun's warming rays is a wonderful way to overcome the fear of sketching on location.

This class uses watercolors, pen, pencil and few other surprise supplies to fill the page.

Laure Ferlita

Laure Ferlita is an accomplished watercolorist residing in sunny Florida. Watercolors, nature, travel, painting on location, sketching for the joy of it, and most especially, color, are her passions!

Vibrant color can be found in almost any subject and its shadows. It is her joy to bring those colors to life on paper with some paint and a little water. For many years, Laure worked as a graphic designer, so you will most likely see a strong graphic element in her work.

She started sharing her joy and love of sketching on location over at in 2009 and has helped many "travelers" to find their artistic voice since then.

“Watercolor, for me, is the perfect sketching medium." Laure says. “It provides ease of use, quick color saturation, and clean up is a snap and really, you don't need much equipment. After you move past the hype of how difficult watercolor can be, you find out how much fun it is to get out there and actually create on location. It's way too much fun!"
