This watercolor class is all about florals and nature images. We will paint both realistic and loose florals focusing on composition and technique. We may experiment with adding texture and natural marks with twigs, etc.

Students must have watercolor experience or have completed Watercolor Basic I & II.

Instructor will provide “office hours” that students can schedule a one-on-one session to ask questions, review progress, and get feedback.
