Using both edible and wild varieties of mushrooms and fungi we will observe and record their individual characteristics prior to drawing them in pencil. This will lead on to painting them in watercolour, either as individual paintings or making a composition of several varieties. This course is open to beginners as well as those with more experience. Some individual help will be given as well as general teaching of the whole group.
