14.8.21 Botanical WatercolorGain confidence and comfort in this class devoted to techniques of botanical painting in watercolor. Using flowers as subjects, students will learn to capture the vitality and drama of these flowers. After creating a base watercolor layer for guidance, artists will add a series of dry-brush layers, gradually increasing color intensity and form. Through demonstration and individualized attention, the instructor will guide students through mixing believable greens and maintaining color clarity. By the end of the class, each student will have a painting either finished or nearly so.

Director of Exhibitions for the American Society of Botanical Artists, she has organized exhibitions of botanical art throughout the US.
