Learn how to paint your favorite perennials in watercolor in this relaxing and fun two-day workshop.

On the first day of the workshop, we will study techniques for painting a bouquet of flowers expressively with a strong composition and with an emphasis on developing values. The second day of the workshop will include training in drawing and painting more detailed aspects of individual flowers, such as their roots, stems, leaves, buds and blooms. Flowers will be provided. Students are also encouraged to bring their favorite cut flowers from their gardens to study and paint in class. A limited number of colors will be used to further understanding of utilizing warm and cool primary colors to mix for desired color results.
