Botanical Illustration With Pen & Ink

Brought to you by The Diggers Club

Your Masterclass

In this workshop, each participant will develop a beautiful botanical illustration using pen and ink with a wash of watercolour. In this relaxed and informative session, the techniques used to create this botanical artwork will be clearly demonstrated.

We will discuss some basic colour theory allowing participants to create vibrant artwork using basic primary colours. By attending this class, you will be introduced to the wonderful world of botanical art and illustration.

Once you've finished your artwork, you will have the skills to further develop artwork in this style. Pen and ink pens, watercolour paper and pigments will be provided on the day for you to use.                            

Lunch is included.
