Peonies are a delightful subject for learning to use a limited palette in watercolor to create a stunning botanical painting! In this course you will discover how to create depth, shape, colors, and textures. Working from a provided template and using successive glazing layers, the peonies will “burst” from the paper, bringing spring to life! When you purchase this course, written instructions will be sent to your email, along with reference and explanatory photos, a template and links to video instruction for each step. Work at your own pace. The painting could be completed in about four hours.
