Botanical Sketching in Watercolor & Ink: Summer Flowers

Capture the amazing colors and shapes of summer flowers in ink and watercolor! This hands-on class offers an intuitive approach to sketching with pen and layering watercolor washes, incorporating simple techniques and tips that can be applied to everyday sketching and painting. We will look at paintings of flowers by Van Gogh and Mondrian to explore the concept of foreshortening, then we will paint using a variety of summer flowers from the nursery as our guides! All levels welcome. $55 fee includes all supplies needed.

Instructor Lisa Snow Lady has a BFA in painting from the University of Washington, a degree in Ornamental Horticulture from Edmonds Community College, and has been sketching and painting for over 20 years. She has a passion for travel sketching and is a member of Urban Sketchers. Lisa teaches botanical sketching at the Volunteer Park Conservatory and through the University of Washington Botanic Center and loves to encourage students of all artistic levels.
