A few more details

My flower painting background started with Botanical Illustration, but I like to paint in a free and joyful way bringing out the beauty and the movement of flowers and the joy of the garden.  Once you understand flower painting, then you can explore the subject in endless ways and in numerous mediums.

.My teaching approach is designed to encourage and inform you in whichever style you wish to explore.  

With a very small number of students, there is plenty of time for individual help.  We will work overlooking the Bradness garden, each selecting flowers and foliage from it for our inspiration.

On these courses, we will work in pencil, pen, watercolour, gouache and ink.  

We will spend 3 days luxuriating in the peace and joy of painting flowers.  

We start on worksheets by drawing and painting simple leaves, then leaf stems and then single flowers.  

After that we progress to composing and painting a picture which you will take home framed and ready to hang.

 Best quality paints, brushes, paper and flowers are all included.  Also included is a lovely mount and frame.  

Do not feel under any pressure to finish your painting as these can be taken home but it is a fun and inspiring thing to do to see your work with a finished presentation.

The days will start at 9.30 and finish at 4.30.
