Join our one-day workshop botanical illustration workshop suitable for all abilities. Working with specimens from the garden, create accurate botanical studies with guidance from professional botanical art tutor Leigh Ann Gale.
Enjoy the array of summer colour, creating a seasonal painting of colourful blossom or foliage using watercolours and/or coloured pencils.
You will need to provide your own cartridge paper and pencils (2H or H) for drawing, and watercolours and sable brushes for painting and/or coloured pencils. You will also need some hot-pressed paper for painting, which may be purchased from Leigh Ann at a small additional cost (usually 50p – £1 depending on size). Please also bring tracing paper if you have it.
