Livermore News for week of Feb. 1


The above artists, from left: Marlys Trauger, Linda Scott, Carol Mckenna and Helen Collins, met at the Livermore Library for the painting tutorial class to learn the basics. They learned form and technique, from choosing a palette and paint to fundamentals such as color mixing, layering and more. They were able to practice their new skills with simple exercises and projects including a monochromatic painting and full-color still life. Submitted photo.
