When: Aug. 5th from 11:00-12:30 (PST)

Summer Botanical Illustrations with Anna Farba

In this inspiring demonstration, Anna Farba will be showing us how to paint white & light-coloured flowers, one of the harder subjects to tackle as a watercolour artist.  She will be painting 2 plants in her botanical sketchbook – blooming blackberry and bunchberry.  Explore the concept of “white is never pure white” in painting and share her thoughts on how to approach painting white-coloured flowers with watercolours without using white paint.
