Autumn Harvest: Nuts and Pods with Angela Lober

Botanic art workshop with expert artist Angela Lober in the Royal Botanic Garden

In this course we will develop a botanic watercolour painting, from initial sketching through to watercolour washes and detailed dry brush. The content of the class will reinforce foundation skills and focus on refining composition, applying watercolour, light and shade, colour and detail. This course caters for students who have previous skills in botanic art and watercolour and would like further tuition to hone their techniques. Any previous experience in botanic art, including the beginner’s classes, would be appropriate entry level experience.

Includes lunches on the Foundation & Friends terrace
