BOTANICAL FORMS

Article text
in gouache and acrylic – late summer flowers / seed heads and seasonal autumn subjects and colour

Fridays 10.15am - 1.15pm (3 hours with breaks)

This course looks at various painting styles for botanical imagery using gouache and acrylic, with reference to several botanical painters such as Moira Huntly, Pamela Kay, Lexi Sundell and more.

We’ll experiment with transparent and opaque techniques, explore layering paint and use a range of surfaces and colours, both paper and card and use mixed media such as masking techniques, oil pastel, coloured pencils and sandpaper.

We’ll use seasonal real plant material and supporting photographic reference. Please note: this is not a botanical illustration course, using very tight and exact detail.
