This three hour course is a perfect fit for beginning watercolour artists. We will begin with going over the materials and supplies Phoebe likes to use when painting floral. We will then go over basic colour theory, cover techniques for brush strokes (wet on wet, dry on wet), creating basic shapes and blending colours. Once we've gone through this material, we will learn how to paint basic leaves and flowers. By the end of the three hour workshop, you will have basic understanding of learning how to paint flowers such as tulips, roses and peonies. This is not a class where you learn to capture the exact detailed likeness of the flower or leaf, rather you will learn how to capture the essence of the flower or leaf by painting its colour, movement and vitality.
Each student will receive a take home kit of Phoebe's preferred supplies. This kit (worth $50) will include a palette with a tray of multiple paint colours, two brushes, and watercolour paper.
