Botanical Watercolor Prints

Watercolor Painting: The livestreaming classes introduce watercolor techniques through live demos and interactive instruction. Techniques include line drawing with watercolor tea wash, building up layers with washes, adding detail with special watercolor effects, mixing colors and more. All levels are welcome.

The paintings made in this workshop are inspired by the figure of the Naturalist, who was both artist and scientist. These recordings are just as much about the subjective process of observation as they are about the recording of scientific data.

Spring Botanical Series

As spring emerges I’m always so grateful to those very early tiny flowers that give the signal that winter is over. These weeds and wildflowers that are first on the scene are so fragile looking one can hardly believe they would also be so brave.

Pictured here are Veronica chamaedrys also known as cat eyes. Primula vulgaris also known as primrose. Lamium purpureum also known as purple dead nettle. I’ll be paying special attention to “weeds” like these during my upcoming Spring Botanical Watercolor Workshop.

G Caruso’s watercolor workshop was excellent and my first online art workshop. I hadn’t worked with watercolor for many years and I was able to refresh my memory and learn new techniques each week. Each session was recorded on dropbox so I was able to reinforce my learning. Each participant was able to upload their projects and get positive feedback and suggestions. G is an organized, very experienced water-colorist and teacher who shares her passion for the medium. She cares about each student and their progress. The sense of community that developed was such a treat. I live in the USA and worked from my studio. There were students from four other countries. I signed up for another class immediately and hope online classes will continue to be offered.

The course about anatomy with G was great! It’s amazing how much you can learn in such a short time and G is a very precise and nice instructor. Thank you for that!

I really recommend these classes to open minded people. Here you will learn basics or enhance your already established skills in a non academic way. You can always grab a book and learn about how you “should” draw lights and shadows, but this is different. This is about approaching reality, breaking through your “standards” and creating something that, sometimes surprisingly, is always definitely interesting. If you are not afraid of what can get out of your pencil when you let it go, just come to this workshop: it is the right place for you!

I took the Spring 2013 Drawing Workshop and can highly recommend it. This is a great class for learning to observe and draw in a structured, yet playful and creative way. I was familiar with some of the ideas from Betty Edwards ‘Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain’, and I also met many new exercises and ways of approaching drawing. Mira is a gentle and supportive teacher, at the same time she is always stretching her students to try different methods and get beyond their self-imposed limits. By the end of the class, I noticed that my drawing had improved in ways that I hadn’t even realised!
