In this watercolour workshop, Lilian will expand on her previous shorter class about "Jangadas", as well as the housing and topography in the state. As the paint comes together, we want you to feel transported to the state of Ceará. You will learn a number of techniques that Lilian uses to capture the essence of South America.
