About the Course

Some experience of sketching and painting plants and flowers using watercolours is needed to attend this workshop. You will be provided with plant samples to draw as well as learning how to study and practice observation skills in pencil. You will be encouraged to use a sketchbook to develop your observation techniques. Your 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.
By the end of the course you will have increased your confidence and ability in drawing through plenty of hands on experience; you will also have improved their watercolour techniques.
