Botanical Watercolours - Autumn Colours

Botanical Watercolours - Autumn Colours // A Weekend Workshop with artist Shevaun Doherty // Saturday October 3rd & Sunday October 4th // 10:00 - 16:30

Join award winning artist Shevaun Doherty for a weekend of Autumn Colour in watercolour.

This two day Botanical Art Workshop will unravel the mysteries of colour mixing, and show you how to achieve rich brilliant colour on paper. Learn how to use washes, glazes, and drybrush effectively to create realistic light and form, and how to build up depth and vibrancy through layering.

An experienced tutor, Shevaun will demonstrate her painting techniques as well as giving practical advice on how to set up botanical subjects for painting, how to choose the right colours, and how to finish and present your artwork.

Whether you are a beginner or simply wish to improve your painting skills, this friendly and informal class will inspire you to pick up your brushes and enjoy the colours of Autumn.

  • Creative Colour Mixing and Layering
