Pick a perfect outdoor location in the Botanical Gardens and paint! In this outdoor workshop you will learn to select an intriguing view that offers a variety of texture, shape, value, and colour. Follow along as Wendy establishes a value pattern by beginning with an underpainting using burnt sienna and purple soft pastels. Learn to work from dark to light and from background to foreground.
