Using our watercolor paints, we will paint lively and colorful garden 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 some mixed media methods to create texture and interest and use what we learn on our flower paintings. All levels welcome.
