Workshop Description: We’ll begin the morning with some exercises in watercolor technique and we’ll explore a brief, yet fascinating history of the art of botanical watercolor painting. We’ll then begin our specimen study with a flat wash and start to build volume and detail over the course of the afternoon with careful layering and observation.
