About the Course

This course is for those who are interested in studying roses in detail using watercolours. Learners will be provided with photos and samples to draw, as well as learning how to study and practice observation skills in pencil. Learners will be encouraged to use a sketchbook to develop their observation techniques.

The tutor will then demonstrate simple watercolour techniques, with advice on colour mixing, and provide one to one support on how to complete a simple botanical watercolour study.

If booking with a CraftCourses voucher for part or all of the course fee, please fill in the contact form above. Your voucher code must be provided at the point of booking.
