Tournesols, girasoles, girasoli. In any language, a field of sunlit sunflowers surrounding a medieval village is a dream-like scene. Create your own field of sun learning how to paint with flowing watercolors while exploring positive and negative space, mixing a range of color values, and capturing sunlight with your paintbrush. A tracing and reference photo is provided to help you simplify the subjects and draw ahead of class time. This allows you to focus on finishing a painting in the session.
