Postponed BOTANICAL WATERCOLOUR Workshop, awaiting new date.

 10.30am – 1.30pm   Cost $50

Facilitator Jan Freeman. 

This two day Workshop provides the opportunity to focus thoughtfully and closely upon flowers, fruits and features of plants.  Botanical painting is all about layering colours. An initial wash of paint will be put on paper:  Then paints are mixed.

Support will be given about where to start and when to stop, drying parts with hair dryer then stretching the painting once it is finished to remove “cockling” of the paper.

Jan is a member of BASA (Botanical Art Society of Australia), who have previously accepted her prints for sale at the Bi-annual exhibition at the Royal Botanical Gardens Melbourne.   She produces Botanical illustration of Flora and Fauna, all painted in non-toxic watercolour and/or Gouache, on Archival quality paper, using the finest artist quality “light fast” paints.
