    How to design, draw, watercolor Poppies - California Poppies are the state flower and they come in a variety of colors. To study them is to revel in their feathery leaves and color. Mina Taylor will teach us how to watercolor and interface them with a monoline alphabet she is calling "Morse-Deco"

    Materials Needed:

    • Watercolors: any set of watercolors. COLORS: Greens (several shades if possible - although we will talk about mixing colors) Blue, Orange, Yellow, White, Red, Tan or Brown. • At least 2-3 water color brushes with a fine tip #1,2, 3 and/or 4. • A dark ink which will not run when it is re-wet. Golden acrylic could work or watered down acrylic craft paint. It need to not run when rewet because we will be placing our poppies on top of the letters. • A "B" nib (this is a round ended nib) preferable a B-2 and holder to insert it. Or if you want to do it the easy way a medium tip Sharpie. • Watercolor paper at aleast 90#. It can be cold or hot press. Cold press will render more texture. • Water for painting • Paper towels

    The 2 hour class will cover what is a cadel and the basic characteristics. Since there were no standard cadel exemplars and few exemplars printed in writing manuals, each scribe developed his own unique style across Europe. The class will be a journey through different cadel styles, showing different design techniques from Flamel’s simpler style to more complex letters by Rossi and Palatino. We will also cover how to use patterns to develop your own capitals.
