About the course

This course will explore how to look at the structure of spring plants, from bulb to flower, and how to paint them in watercolour using colour matching and painting techniques.

Some of these plants are quite small, so we’ll look at changing or keeping to a life-size painting. Beginners are welcome, as well as those with more experience.

We shall work in pencil first and move on to painting in watercolour. You will be taught in a group, but individual help is available too.
