This is a practical workshop for all levels from beginners to advanced students. Using flowers as the theme and inspiration for this course you will discover how to draw by observing shape, perspective, shadows, tone, pattern and depth.
You will learn to dissect and identify the many layers within one single flower and draw that flower from several different angles.
