Level: Intermediate

Prerequisite: Watercolor I (or equivalent watercolor experience)

Limning, a traditional painting method dating back to the Renaissance, has been used by botanical artists and scientific illustrators for centuries and is still favored by those who need to portray their subjects with great precision. For this technique, tiny brushstrokes are used to build up a highly detailed image. Receive step-by-step instruction on this watercolor technique and practice it using high-quality photos of plants and flowers that you select as references.
