You’ll cover the basics of drawing and arranging objects on the canvas, setting out the painting according to tonal values, and careful layering of colour to capture the light that reveals the true essence of your subject. Charlotte will provide a range of wonderful and wild vegetable, fruit, and flowers, where each student selects, curates, draws and paints their own masterpiece, receiving guidance from Charlotte throughout the process.
