Workshop Description:

Flowers & Nature

Learn how create intriguing and powerful compositions by using your own reference material or follow along with step-by-step demonstrations throughout each and every day (sketches & photos are provided). Add the water back into watercolor painting and make that color move. Glaze color while building layers and by using both positive and negative painting bring the illusion of depth into the flower. Put the WOW into your paintings and make them sing. Bring other elements into your work as Birgit teaches you how to control water and color to get effective three-dimensional effects on a two dimensional surface. Open to all skill levels willing to learn and have fun.
