Recording the beauty and freshness of flora “in situ” is a plein air botanical artist’s greatest desire. 

In this class, learn to capture the spontaneity of flowers and floral subjects using expressive graphite and watercolor washes. Explore new ways to see and develop perspective with “quick draw” methods. Discover the expansive and harmonious nature of a limited palette when you develop your own Color Palette Exploration Chart. Learn how to enhance and build value-rich form and spatial quality layering transparent color. Experiment with contemporary approaches to composition. 

With classroom instruction and exercises, and plenty of one-on-one guidance in the field, you will be ready to complete an illuminated chronicle of your day in the garden!
