This workshop will focus on using dry brush watercolor to replicate the colors and form of holly, mistletoe and evergreens. “Dry brush" refers to the art of using only a small amount of paint to damp a brush. Create paintings to turn into seasonal holiday cards. Learn the basics of the dry brush technique, including color mixing and layering, working from light to dark, adding fine detail and using dry brush with the "skin" of dried paint on the palette. Attendees will be provided with photographs and outlines to work from throughout the class. These materials will be provided post-registration along with a required material list. This two-session class led by botanical artists Anastasia Traina will include instructional time and group critique.
Anastasia Traina is a member of SAG, WGA, The Dramatists Guild, The American Society of Botanical Artists, the Tri-State Botanical Artists of NYBG, the SBA, as well as Circle East and graduated with honors from the NYBG botanical art degree program.
