    Painting Glowing Orchids in Watercolor
    April 16-17, 9am – 4:30pm
    US Botanic Garden, Washington, DC

    After an overview of the special botanical characteristics of orchids, and a primer on the unique qualities of vellum, students will learn to combine the two. Creating rich color through multiple layers of watercolor dry brush, artists will capture shaded form and surface qualities such as gloss, veining, and warts so characteristic of orchids. Using vellum’s special surface to its greatest advantage, artists will gain comfort in working with this beautiful and translucent material.

    For more information, contact Carol Woodin.

    This information has also been posted to the Classes Near You sections for New York and Washington, DC.
