BOTANICALS! - Susan Giannantonio

Saturday and Sunday
March 23 and 24
9:30am - 3:30pm

Plant material can enhance and almost paint your painting for you!  Join us as we utilize the shapes, textures and patterns of leaves, plant material and natural elements to create paintings that celebrate the beauty of the garden.


NOTE: Unusual supply list!

Supply List:

  • Leaves.  Plants with printable veins, flattened in a book (not phone book, you need them to be weighted, flat). For best results, keep the plants flat in the book until the moment you use them in class.  Ferns and grasses, trees and bushes with prominent veining on their back side work beautifully.  Also, interesting leaf shapes are lovely even without veining.
  •  Masking or painter’s tape
  • Watercolor pencils (optional)
  • Rocks, flat glass marbles (floral arranging marbles), or weights for plants.  May be bought at most Dollar-type stores
  • A baggie of fresh grass from your yard
  • Watercolors
  • A pad of watercolor paper.  We will do multiple paintings.  
  • Favorite watercolor brushes.  Especially a mop or round that holds a lot of paint/water
  • Spray bottle or mist bottle of water
  • Bottle of diluted dish detergent or shampoo. 
  • White gouache (optional)
  • White acrylic paint or paint marker(s) (optional)
  • Paint cloths, rags or paper towels (I use terrycloth)
