Botanical Illustration Workshop at Nature in Art

Monday 22 July 2024

Botanical Illustration (watercolour/gouache) with Simon Williams

Nature in Art at Wallsworth Hall is the world's first museum and art gallery dedicated to art inspired by nature. They run creative art workshops throughout the year.

This course will focus on botanical drawing and painting techniques with the option of working in watercolour or gouache. Observational skills with good initial drawing are a very important part of botanical art.

Students will be encouraged to work from life by making detailed studies from either plants, leaves, fruit or vegetable specimens. The course tutor will advise on a practical one-to-one basis. Guidance will be given for observations, colour mixing and how to paint the initial base coats through to more controlled dry brush painting techniques. This will include rendering textures, contour definitions and colour transitions.

This course is open to all levels but it is preferential to have some drawing/painting experience, as botanical work requires a precise rather than loose style of painting.
