MARCY GORDON TEACHES TWO CLASSES IN BOTANICAL ILLUSTRATION THIS FALL.

 

Marcy Gordan began her artistic career training and painting in oils, but discovered and fell in love with watercolor after exploring botanical illustration at the University of Washington. She has taught watercolor illustration for more than 25 years. “There is nothing more satisfying to me than to sit in front of a beautiful flower, studying the form and color, and then painting what I see,” Marcy says. She is teaching beginning and intermediate classes in botanical illustration using watercolor this fall.
