You will create a botanical watercolor painting, step by step, with Mira O’Brien. This video is a recording from our The free livestreaming class that was held on Tuesday, January 10, 6-8pm CET.
We will paint the iconic early spring flower of the primrose, Primula vulgaris. Even though it is still a little bit early to find this flower, I can’t help but look ahead to the thawing of winter. I’ve even seen these seemingly delicate flowers peeking out of the snow in the past years. We will follow a basic layering technique to achieve detail and depth with this flower. Join me in creating a bright little painting or this brave flower.

“Individual plants bear either pin flowers or thrum flowers. Fertilisation can only take place between pin and thrum flowers. Pin-to-pin and thrum-to-thrum pollination is ineffective.” – Wikipedia Can you tell if your specimen is pin or thrum?
