Flower festival watercolor workshop
in roxanne's studio & garden
- Saturday, May 12, 2018
- 9:15 AM 4:00 PM
All of us New Englanders have been waiting sooooo long for Spring to show up! Now that it's finally here, let's celebrate with a Flower-Festival-Paint-a-palooza at my house. It's a day long workshop with a focus on flowers; how to slow down and draw them, as well as quicker ways to capture the essence of these fleeting beauties. Best of all, we'll be putting these sketches/small paintings into a special "accordion-style" watercolor sketchbook, which you can scroll out and display in all its loveliness any time of year (especially fun in the middle of winter when you are wanting to see every blooming thing possible).
We'll start out inside the studio surrounded by flowers to paint from, break for a beautiful lunch provided by moi. Then back out into the garden (weather permitting) to continue our day of painting, finishing up our day with a celebratory, bubbly toast (alcoholic or non).
I provide the accordion sketchbook, and you bring your own paints, brushes, ink pens. Basic watercolor knowledge is a required prerequisite, but I'll be teaching ideas for drawing, layout, verse, and embellishments for your creation!
