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.
