Lilies are some of the most loved and cherished plants in our gardens: they are delicate, intricate and perfect for capturing in a transparent medium. Although transparent acrylic looks similar to watercolor, the damp-on-damp technique offers a more controlled and methodical application process. After a guided field trip to see the blooming lily varieties at the Gardens, select a specimen of your choice. Back in the classroom, step-by-step instructions, demonstrations and exercises provide the necessary skills for you to build washes, colors, textures and details for a final lily portrait.

Prerequisites: Color Mixing, Composition for Botanical Illustration, Perfecting Perspective.
