Leaves form the background for most botanical paintings. It is important to spend the time to make them accurate. We will work to make the veins and margins realistic in their finishing touches while following the form and texture of several leaves. This workshop will cover leaf-painting techniques using dry brush work, masking fluid, lifting and leaving the white paper.
For more information about the workshop, sign-up, and the materials list, please see the BAGSC website “Classes” and “Class Details” page.
