Capture the freshness of the spring garden as you learn to mix 'clean' colours and apply shadows to pale flowers whilst keeping their original intensity. Focus on colour, colour mixing and tone, and the use of light and shade to shape your subject. Gain confidence in your watercolour painting skills and produce several paintings.
