Norfolk Botanical Garden Class & Wildflower
Hi, Here is a little painting I did at the beach from 2 little wildflowers I picked there. I believe it's Painted Lady.. it was everywhere. Then we had a wonderful tomato that Pete brought and so I had to paint it.
Yesterday I went to the Norfolk Botanical Garden. I had never been. It was amazing. Everywhere I looked was a gorgeous landscape to paint.. so many gorgeous plants and well needless to say I was just in awe of the beauty. I went to see my classroom and meet with the director about my upcoming class in August. We will be painting some flowers cut from the garden just for us! and the room looks onto a lovely landscape so that is another possiblity for painting. It's going to be fabulous. If you live near Norfolk,Virginia Beach or the Eastern Shore it would be a great time to learn watercolor or enhance your painting and enjoy all that beauty! August 13, on a Saturday from 10am-3pm. Supplies included and so is a box lunch. Cost is $105 or $85 for members of the garden. Call 1-757-441-5830 to register.I've got the website connected to the side where the classes are so you can look and see. Here are a few pictures from yesterday.. and I only saw a small part of the gardens. well I guess I'll go start a little painting. talk to you soon, Diana
