This course is an introduction to the techniques of transparent watercolor using live plant material. Students will learn to apply paint and render the precise characteristics of specific plants, paying close attention to form, detail and color accuracy. Beginning with a simple plant form, students will move quickly to more complex plant portraits. Those with botanical drawings may proceed immediately to finished paintings. Prior drawing experience is helpful.
