Designed for adults 55+, this six-session workshop explores the path to coloring your botanical drawings and paintings. Techniques for developing more finished work from field studies will include transferring your drawings, using watercolor and gouache, and rendering light, shadow, and detail in color. Spend time sketching outdoors at the Grounds, as well as work from live cuttings and photographic reference when needed.
