How to paint flora & fauna in Gouache and Watercolour

Join one of the UK’s leading botanical illustrators Simon Williams, for a two-day workshop painting flora and fauna in gouache or watercolour with one to one tuition and demonstrations.  This annual workshop is geared to help you build your skills and take the more experienced artist to the next level.

This two day workshop is suitable for those with an interest in capturing the detail of botanical and nature subjects.  Some painting experience is necessary and the course requires a precise rather than loose style of painting.  If you are unsure if this course would be for you, please do feel free to contact us via email or on 07984 887133 to chat about the options.

Refreshments are included with participants bringing a packed lunch or dining at the cafe on-site.  This is a non-residential workshop. 

The outline programme along with the suggested list of materials will be forwarded 4 weeks prior to the workshop start date.
