While we’re all enraptured by the beautiful flowers of spring bulbs, we’ll look below for our subject in this class. In this one day immersion, we'll learn to capture the anchors that feed and hold the flowers and leaves - their bulbs and roots. Avoid formulaic depiction of roots, and use them to add weight to your paintings. Using earth tones, warm and cool colors, small bulbs with roots will be explored first by making a graphite rendering, then by painting in watercolor either on paper or vellum.
