Join Belinda on this exciting

opportunity to do Botanical

painting. In this course as

part of the botanical painting

we will paint birds, butterflies

and bugs as part of the

overall scene.

Botanical illustration is a

wonderful way of portraying

interesting, the unusual or

just your favourite plants and

flowers. With an eye for

detail, in this workshop, you

will start with a full tonal

pencil drawing, studying the

light, shade, form and

texture of the specimens.

You will then move on to watercolour to create a beautiful painting.

There will be plenty of demonstrations and individual attention to guide

you through your drawing and painting. If you would like to add birds,

butterflies or bugs etc to your painting or paint birds solely on their own I

can lead you through this too.

While some previous experience with watercolour would be helpful it is

not essential, so beginners are most welcome.

This is a fascinating and very addictive art form. Beware!
