About This Class

c18bff16

In this class we will be using watercolour paint to create a beautiful peony wreath.  We will be using a wet in wet technique to encourage the flowers to start painting themselves, then go on to use the paint wet on dry to add detail and bring out the flower forms.  It's a really fun and easy way of painting which I'm sure you'll love.

This class is suitable for all abilities from a complete beginner to a seasoned artist wanting to try something a little different.
