Studies in Botanical Watercolor Painting

Studies in Botanical Watercolor Painting: February 11, 18 & 25, 2017 – 3 Class Series

Beginner/Intermediate study in sketching and painting plants on sight. In this class, we will spend time painting three different plant species over the course of three weeks: February 11, February 18 & February 25. Each student will be supplied with their own watercolor set to keep and continue on their watercolor practices after the class series is over. The hopes of this class is that student’s will learn the fundamentals of drawing and painting nature and gain confidence in their skills so that they can go out into nature and continue their studies long after the classes end.
