This workshop will provide a unique opportunity to combine detailed watercolour botanical painting with expressive abstract work. You will cover basic watercolour techniques – such as wet-on-wet painting and drybrushing, as well as focusing on composition and colour theory. Students will be given step-by-step instructions on how to complete a magnificent, impressionistic-style painting of autumn foliage. Materials List available for download above.
