Using the example of hydrangea, one of the most interesting plants in terms of complex color transitions and compositional solutions, we will go through the features of watercolor technique in painting flowers, building a form, the basics of academic drawing, elements of botanical illustration, and also talk about proportions and aerial perspective.

This workshop is for you:

If you want to learn how to render flowers realistically and master different watercolor techniques, from botanical painting to sketching.

What will the workshop include?

  • Learning the basics of botanical painting.
  • Contrasting the techniques of classical botanical painting with one-layer painting.
  • Applying layering techniques to get a more realistic image in the center of the composition.
  • Alla prima watercolor technique. Transitions, nuances, shadows, veins, details: everything is applied at once in about two minutes, while the sheet gets dry. This technique teaches you a lot: to see, to calculate in advance and to avoid mistakes during the painting process.
  • Basics of painting wet-on-wet.
  • Coloring and color matching for painting light and shadow.
  • Composition and aerial perspective.
  • Arranging objects on a sheet, distancing objects and bringing them closer.
