Appalachian Flowers 1, 2, 3


Paint wildflowers found on our local hiking trails using primary colors: red, yellow and blue plus two bonus colors. Each week we will paint a different flower and a big bouquet the last week, just for fun! 

Course Format

This is an online, synchronous course that unfolds over the course of four weeks. Participants will join live Zoom meetings, where they will participate in live demonstrations. Additional work will be completed during the week. 


If you are local, I suggest Cheap Joe’s for paint, paper and watercolor brushes of your choice.

  • #8 or #10 watercolor brush (I use both)
  • 1 inch flat brush
  • Rigger
  • American journey watercolor or any of your choice (Red, Yellow, and Blue)
  • *Bonus colors: Chinese White (for accents), Windsor Violet
  • *I love Windsor Violet as it comes so close to the color of many of our wildflowers. You can, of course, mix your own purple. Just be aware of reds that lean toward orange, and blues that lean toward green.
  • 140 or 300lb watercolor paper (Kilimanjaro- Joe’s brand is super)
  • You will need a water container, palette or plate for your color, a rag or a sponge, #2 pencil and an eraser.
