Through watercolor painting and practice in a variety of watercolor skills, this class will explore ways to present wildflower subjects, specifically noxious weeds. Students will be challenged by overlapping leaves, flowers and stems and will learn to portray a variety of textures and plant details. Individual guidance will help students select the appropriate techniques for washes, softening edges and painting details while producing a final plate for possible publication. This class might involve research in the library and in the herbarium. Fee: $230 member, $285 non-member. Prerequisites: Pencil I, Watercolor II or Certificate in Botanical Illustration.
