Improve your drawing skills to capture more realistic depictions of flowers. Instructed by local artist, Katherine Dickinson, her demonstrations will guide you through a variety of exercises used to study a flower's posture and character through line, shape, structure and form, identifying critical angles and accurate proportions.

Experiment with watercolour washes, mixing colours to match the flower's natural colours and adding dry brush texture markings. 

Specimens: Seasonal flower suggestions - Roses, Sweet Pea, Lilies or Fuchsias

Art supplies: Mechanical Pencil 0.5 and an HB pencil, multimedia sketchbook, newsprint or printing paper (for drawing exercises), paint palette (white ceramic plate), watercolour paint set (Windsor & Newton or similar), set of watercolour brushes or #1, #4 and #6 (round with a point)

This course will take place online, and recordings will be available for a limited time to participants. Pre-registration required.
