Watercolor White on White - Flowers
How do you paint a white flower on white paper? In the tradition of
botanical watercolor, the background is often left white. What are
you to do if your flower is also white? Students will be guided
through the process of observing subtle variation, selecting
advantageous composition and the painting of shadows in this full day
workshop. There will also be discussion about the importance of the
choice of materials.

Time: 9am – 3pm
More than an introduction to Botanical Watercolor, this class will
teach plant structure, simple to complex compositions, light and
shadowing, color interaction, layering, focusing on edges and
constructing a painting from start to finish. It is expected that
