Learn how to create stunning florals this fall with popular watercolor artist, Mary Marquiss!

From Mary: “I’m returning to my first love for the subject matter for this workshop, the primary focus of my 30 years in art!

We’ll begin Monday by warming up with incorporating florals into the cruciform abstract design. Tuesday I’ll teach you how to bring my signature red poppy to life, and Wednesday you’ll learn how to paint flowers in a glass vase.”

Mary invites each painter to come to this workshop open to the spontaneous nature of watercolor. Allow the playful elements of this medium to show up in your work, enjoy the process of learning and leave judgment behind
