Botanical Art workshop: Dry-brush botanical painting technique with Wendy Brockman


Saturday, November 10, 2018

9:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Wendy Brockman, Award winning botanical painter and long time instructor

Level: Intermediate - Advanced
Learn to build color and texture in your botanical paintings using layers of dry brush watercolor. Through discussion, demonstration and individual instruction, renowned nature artist Wendy Brockman will share her painting techniques and experiences. Bring a specimen and a drawing on your preferred painting surface (hot press watercolor paper, smooth bristol or vellum) which has been taped to a scrap of mat board. Because of limited time, a 5” x 7” or smaller size is suggested. This will give you a solid starting point and allow you to concentrate on learning techniques and maximize your painting time. Simple plant parts, nuts and small vegetables, and fruits work well. *Vellum (5” x 7”) will be available for purchase if you would like to give it a try. Presented in conjunction with the GREAT RIVER CHAPTER of the American Society of Botanical Artists (ASBA) Exhibition in the Reedy Gallery.
