In this 4-session intensive workshop we will be using tube paints, watercolor pencils and a few of the FineTec Pearlescent Watercolors to bring out the jewel-like shimmering feathers of a these tiny but fierce little birds. We will be painting on Hot Press watercolor paper, which allows for more control of the paint and greater detail.
