Catinka Knoth will give a watercolor demonstration on painting a Maine coastal landscape, “Monroe’s Island and Sheep’s Island,” Monday, Aug. 9 at 11 a.m. in her studio at Lincoln Street Center for Arts and Education, 24 Lincoln St. This event is free and open to the public.

Knoth will create another version of a view originally painted from the walkway up to Owls Head Lighthouse. Onlookers will see how variegated washes can depict a sky and calligraphic brushstrokes can represent trees and rocks.

The demonstration precedes a four-part studio watercolor workshop series Knoth will teach titled Painting Maine Coastal Landscapes, a studio watercolor workshop exploring  basic aspects of a Maine coastal view. The class will meet Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to noon from Aug. 10 through 31. Each week will have a different motif.
