We will focus on painting colorful flowers using watercolors. These will be impressionistic flower paintings with the emphasis on loose and flowing painting techniques. Part of the process will include painting on different papers and exploring the best watercolor pigments to use for painting flowers. We will add ink, acrylics, and other mixed media methods to create texture and interest and use what we learn on our flower paintings.

Materials fee $8 paid directly to instructor at beginning of class includes:

Stabilo pencils, masking fluid, sample watercolor paints, gouache, masa papers, pallet knife, gold-leaf pens, photos of flowers, artist tape
