Fall Leaves: An introduction to painting plants with watercolors
With Sally Petru
Friday, November 6, 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Learn the basic techniques for creating a botanical painting. This 2-hour workshop will be an exchange of demonstrations and exercises designed to promote your understanding of how to develop a botanical painting. Have a fall leaf ready at hand for the class. Sally will guide you through measuring and drawing your leaf onto watercolor paper followed by the application of watercolor from wet to dry brush. All levels are welcome. A materials list will be provided.
Let’s look at leaves and fall plants from our neighborhood. We will focus on seeing details to understand how the world of botany works. Are they big, little, round, pointed, flat, thick, simple, or complicated? The workshop will look at the characteristics of plants by observing and doing simple drawings in pencil and ink. This will help you create plant images through sketching and line drawings. All levels welcome.
