Les Fleurs, Watercolor Flowers

Jacqueline Newbold

Tuesday Eve

[back to quicklinks]
$ 95  

Watercolor flowers are lively, dynamic, and fun to paint! Using watercolors as our base, you will paint colorful backgrounds for your wildflower paintings. You will learn how to draw more interesting playful flower shapes, paint petals with a colorful glow, and build up layers of color to create dimension and impressionistic flowers. We will add pen and ink to enhance our flowers. As seen in the last issue of the Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine, Jacqueline will guide you step-by-step as you create a page of lively, colorful red poppies and poppy pods. All levels welcome
