Online Workshops

Workshop 1.  Spring Bulbs – 1  March 11 and 12, 2 pm to 7 pm, GMT

Workshop 2.  Spring Bulbs – 2  March 25 and 26, 2 pm to 7 pm, GMT

I’m delighted to offer online opportunities for you to learn botanical watercolour painting with me. 

During our online workshop we will slow down, taking time to really look at the bright, fresh and vibrant colours of the changing seasons. Using first wet and then dry watercolour painting techniques we will experience the mindful process of botanical art while learning to capture the beauty of Spring bulbs.

Demonstrations will include:

  • colour mixing and matching,
  • capturing light and shade,
  • layering of colours,
  • painting fine detail
  • finishing with a WOW!

To make the experience as stress free as possible, I will provide an image and a line drawing of a simple plant subject for anyone who wishes to use it. For those who choose to draw their own subject, I’ll suggest a simple subject, -tulips / crocuses. Students will have time to do some observational drawing in the class. 

Each workshop will happen over two days – 5 hours per day.
