In this two day course, students will learn the basics of how flowers are put together and how diverse flowers and leaf forms are. They’ll use pencil to look at recording lights and darks and will learn the basics of using and mixing watercolour. We’ll cover mixing greens, different ways to tackle painting white flowers, mixing yellows and adding shadows to them, and we’ll work with pinks and try to get them really delicate or really vibrant. Students will get to paint a variety of flowers from the Botanic Garden, and see tutor demos of leaf and flower painting. By the end of the course students should feel happy using watercolours; be comfortable mixing colours; be able to tackle yellow, white and pink flowers; and have produced a variety of study drawings and watercolour sketches.
