About the Course

On this two day botanical art course you will be introduced to the techniques and processes used to create accurate plant portraits using a variety of media. Starting with simple line drawing you will be encouraged to focus in on the form and detail of autumnal subjects such as seed heads, fir cones and fruit.

You will be guided through how to depict these subjects in black and white on the first day (pencil, pen and ink) and an exploration of watercolour on day two. This course is suitable for beginners that are fascinated by the natural world, or those who want to delve into the process of producing realistic plant studies. More experienced artists can also be accommodated, bringing their own project if preferred.

Julia Trickey is an award-winning botanical artist and experienced tutor. She enjoys depicting the beauty and detail of nature in watercolour and is particularly drawn to less than perfect specimens such as autumnal leaves, seed heads and fading flowers, often depicting them larger than life. She has received many awards for her work including four RHS gold medals. Julia has produced written resources and online tutorials for botanical artists as well as articles for national art magazines. She teaches regularly in the beautiful historic city of Bath and runs workshops for botanical art
groups further afield.
