If you haven’t tried this type of painting, you are missing out on lots of fun. It should be called “play time.” Are you looking for new, fresh ways to depict the beauty of landscapes and gardens? Try these fresh and loosely rendered techniques that almost paint themselves! Subscribe now!
Leaves: Freshly cut plants with printable veins, cut within 24 hours and flattened in a book. You may want to weigh down the book overnight. For best results, keep the plants flat in the book until we use them in class. Ferns and grasses, trees and bushes with prominent veining on their back side work beautifully. Also, interesting leaf shapes are lovely even without veining.

Watercolor pencils (otional)
Rocks, flat glass marbles (floral arranging marbles), or weights for plants. May be bought at most Dollar-type stores
