Acrylic Large Botanical


About the Course

This course is open to all abilities. Teaching and support will be tailored to each individual's capabilities to create a large botanical acrylic painting!

Extra material, tasks and resources will be available and you will have the opportunity to dive as deep as you want.

In this course you will learn to paint with acrylics on a large scale to create a unique and colourful artwork. From the initial exploration of botanical shapes to investigating observational drawings of leaves, plants and flowers. Designing your own mood-board by collecting botanical details and colour palette to help you to visualise your large composition. Practicing brushes and strokes will give you the confidence to paint on a large scale and finalise your original artwork.

Initially you will create the layout on A3 cartridge paper and later you will transfer it onto an A1 stretched cotton canvas. 

At the end of the course there will be the opportunity to display your best artworks in a collective art exhibition at Reveley Lodge.

The Tutor:
Eclectic artist currently based in the North of London. I studied art and worked as Interior Designer in Italy, where I’m from. After a summer course at Edinburgh College of Art, I continued to develop my artistic skills as a part-time student at Leith School of Art. I love architecture, large painting, illustration and portraits. Mixed media, bold colours, shapes and lines are defining my works.
