Holiday giftie to myself, booked: #fb

A beginners workshop over two Saturdays, covering skills of observation, drawing and watercolour painting to create a plant portrait. Through a series of structured exercises you will be taught to draw and paint a plant accurately, to represent its form, tone and colour, and to consider composition to achieve a work of art. Optional homework exercises will be set in between sessions. Close guidance will be offered throughout. Materials Please bring a sharp HB pencil, a rubber, several pieces of inexpensive A3 drawing paper, a pointed sable brush (Series 7, Miniature Kolinsky Winsor & Newton size 6 ideal) watercolour paints (French Ultramarine, Lemon Yellow or Winsor Yellow, Magenta, Raw Sienna, Burnt Sienna) and a piece of A3 hot-pressed Arches or Fabriano paper 300gsm HP. If you cant find the watercolour paper, the tutor will bring along some small sheets.
