Join Belinda on this exciting opportunity to do botanical painting. In this

course as part of the botanical painting we will add butterflies and insects

as part of the overall scene.


Botanical illustration is a wonderful way of portraying interesting,

unusual or just your favourite plants and flowers. With an eye for detail,

in this workshop, you will start with a full tonal pencil drawing, studying

the light, shade, form and texture of the specimens.

You will then move on to watercolour to create a beautiful painting.

There will be plenty of demonstrations and individual attention to guide

you through your drawing and painting.

If you would like to add butterflies or insects etc to your painting or paint

insects solely on their own she can lead you through this too.

While some previous experience with watercolour would be helpful it is

not essential, so beginners are most welcome.

This is a fascinating and very addictive art form. Beware!
