In this workshop we will use watercolour to capture the shine of buds and the deep hot colours of summer petals. You'll discover the joys of the painting buds, capturing their inherent tension and promise of petals to come.
Working with washes and then dry brush for detail and finishing, you will be guided through appropriate botanical art techniques with short demonstrations to build confidence.
