Welcome to an introduction to watercolor and gouache with artist Sarah Simon. Finding inspiration in the ever-blooming variety of textures and colors in her urban garden of the Pacific Northwest, Sarah creates lush watercolor paintings in a unique, artistic style that has captured an international following. In this workshop, Sarah introduces us to color blending theory, color gradient ‘washes’ – and using a live bouquet for inspiration – a detailed study of building watercolor florals from the ground up.Once we’ve each completed our bouquet – or floral fascination – together, Sarah introduces us to Florence, her favorite flower girl. We’ll finish our piece by customizing our own illustrated muse.This workshop includes:An in-depth, digital workshop by Sarah SimonA live & recorded Maker Chat Q&A with our artist
