intended for anyone with some experience in watercolor, who is interested in this unique type of art. We will cover the history of botanical art, basic plant and leaf shapes, how to study and make notes on your subject, masking and composition. Everyone will start a painting on 140lb. Arches paper.

Arches paper.


NB: I will bring extra tracing paper, 140lb. Arches paper and lots of other supplies.
