Watercolor Sketching On Location with Marco Bucci
Artist Marco Bucci received a package of art goodies from us, including our new Travel Series line of watercolor papers. Marco took the supplies to the great outdoors and created two fantastic on-site watercolor sketches.
Marco filmed the process and jam-packed the video with helpful tips and insights on plein air painting / urban sketching.
