Botanical Painting Workshop with Beverly Allen

A four day contemporary botanic workshop with multi-award-winning artist Beverly Allen

You'll build your watercolour skills by the demonstration of techniques from initial washes to dry brush detail and finishing, and through individual instruction. The emphasis will be on close observation, accurate drawing, the many subtleties of colour and use of light to create a three dimensional painting. Suitable for intermediate to advanced students, or those with drawing skills and experience in other media. 

Includes refreshments and lunches each day in the beautiful surrounds of the Botanic Gardens.
