    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

    I’ll be using examples of my work in various mediums and creative themes that held my interest as an art student, graphic designer, painter, and calligrapher, that still today pull my letterform practice towards deeper meaning as a mode of self transformation and healing. I strongly believe that the challenges we all face as humans can be used for good, and to propel us all towards better health and into loving, nurturing relationships with ourselves and each other.
