Beginning Botanical Watercolor

Phone: 206-685-2590

Instructor: Kathleen McKeehen, Botanical Artist and Instructor

Learn the basics of classical botanical watercolor painting, which will include techniques in measurement, drawing, and understanding how light reveals form, along with practice in color mixing. The application of controlled washes and dry-brush technique will contribute further, producing an image that is three-dimensional, accurate, and aesthetically appealing--the goal of botanical painting--and equally effective in painting other subjects realistically.
