Learning to paint plants and flowers is a lovely way to enhance your brush techniques and color mixing skills. You’ll be guided step-by-step as you explore a variety of nature-inspired subjects ranging from seashells and acorns to trees and landscapes. Emphasis will be placed on acrylic and water soluble oil paints as well as building confidence in still life painting from observation. Beginner and experienced artists are welcome. Optional separate one time charge for a Davis Studio Painting Supply Kit.
