Botanical Portraits in Watercolor: Basics and Beyond

This series is sold out.

Perfect for the beginning watercolorist, this class will cover basic watercolor techniques, color theory, composition, prevention and correction of common watercolor “mistakes,” and techniques for creating realistic plant portraits. At the end of this series, students will have all the tools they need to paint any plant in their garden.

This is a 3 session series, meeting 4/12, 4/19 & 4/26.

Instructor: Samantha Peters is a science illustrator based in Dallas, Texas. She received her B.S. in Biology with an emphasis in Neurobiology from the University of Texas at Austin and attended the School of Medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, leaving once she realized illustrating her study guides was more fun than actually studying them. She attended the graduate program in Science Illustration at California State University, Monterey Bay.
