About the Course
In this class you will learn how to see and draw any flower by analyzing its basic form and then render it into a realistic three-dimensional image through the use of light and shadow. The class will cover tips on how to understand and accurately depict proportions and angles, the basic elements of light and shadow, and how to draw overlapping shapes. All levels welcome. Materials list available at sharonartstudio.org.
