Advanced Botanical Watercolor Techniques
with Heeyoung Kim

A good botanical watercolor should show mastery of the medium, aesthetic quality and accurate scientific information about the subject. To achieve this goal, artists should not only be able to use watercolor skillfully, but also to make decisions about what parts of the plant/s are to be depicted and how to do it. In this workshop, Heeyoung Kim shares her know-how by focusing on challenges that are common, but critical to improve the quality of botanical art.
