Join Susan Pearson for a 3-week series on botanical watercolour. Each week you will focus on a single botanical specimen, and channel all your colours into the stem, leaves and flowers. With finer brushes, you can bring intricate reference materials to this workshop in order to create a realistic painting. Use your creativity to choose colours, while maintaining discipline in your portrayal of botanical pieces.

For this class, Susan suggests that participants have the following materials at home:

Paper - Arches 140lb-300lb. cold press watercolour paper, 9” x 12” or larger.
Watercolour Paints - Holbein brand: Red ( Carmine) Yellow ( New Gamboge) Blue (Peacock blue). Can add Olive Green, Opera (hot pink), and Payne’s grey.
