Warm up your autumn by recalling summer garden beauty. During this online workshop, explore how to draw and paint two beautiful subjects: the trumpet flower and one of its most loved pollinators, the hummingbird. Learn how an understanding of basic botanical and bird anatomy informs drawing practice and makes work more lifelike. The workshop will explore fundamental watercolor techniques, color theory, color mixing, and artistic compositional principles. Mary Ellen will share a few "pro tips" to give your work a bit of artistic flare!
