FEBRUARY MONTHLY PAINT-IN: Botanicals from Fresh Flowers with Liz Wagar
Liz Wagar is back to teach her popular Botanicals Paint-In. This year it is a “Valentine’s” theme! See Liz’s website at: http://elizabethwagar.com/
Take a fresh break from winter and come paint fresh flowers! We will review the art of botanical illustration and art from the Renaissance to present-day and explore why formal botanical art is painted as a separate discipline. Learn the specific techniques for drawing and painting on hot-press paper and why botanical “anatomy” is important.
There will be fresh flowers provided for you to choose from for your botanical. If you were lucky enough to get your own flowers for Valentine’s, feel free to bring them and paint a memento.
Bring your usual painting supplies and a sheet of hot press paper.
Bring a sack lunch, sweater or light jacket (in case the room temp is cool), We’ll have snacks and coffee!Accompanying image by Liz Wagar: “Hydrangeas”
