Course description

The flowers of different types of hydrangeas accompany us throughout the summer. It is simply wonderful to see how the flowers develop and how they also change their colors and shapes in the fall. It is always fun to paint the blossom color play as flower watercolors. Step by step we will paint the hydrangeas together, because it is not as complicated as it looks.

This is the recording of a Live-Course.
