Art Nouveau: Watercolor Pans

The Art Nouveau movement brought about a modern approach to the classic methods of the grand masters. Alphonse Mucha created magnificent illustrations often featuring women that burst with life with organic and ornate frames, halos of flowers and long flowing hair. This month we challenge you to create a watercolor piece inspired by Mucha’s Art Nouveau style!
