The Course will focus on botanical painting, giving the learner the opportunity to work in either watercolour or gouache. The course will be taught by Simon Williams SBA.

Gouache and watercolour are both water soluble mediums and can produce stunning paintings. Gouache is an opaque form of     watercolour and is not an inferior medium to watercolour. For much of the time it is used for illustration, book design and          publishing for its fantastic reproduction and vibrant colour. Throughout the course you will be guided in colour mixing,           botanical accuracy, brush techniques to render fine detail and the most important skills to gaining 3 dimensional forms to botanical studies.

This course is open to people that have some drawing/painting experience, improvers and advanced levels to a precise rather than loose style of painting. Please visit the tutor’s website to see  samples for the style of painting.
