Birnam Institute Workshop: 20th October

Later this month, I am running a workshop as follows:

Drawing and Painting Trees

Birnam Institute, Saturday 20th October 2018 10 am - 4 pm £45

The botanical artist’s take on drawing and painting trees, with a visit to study, sketch and photograph the nearby Birnam Oak, weather permitting. Find out how to create rendered graphite images and experiment with wet on wet and dry brush watercolour techniques. Explore methods of working from photographs. We will also take a look at a selection of tree paintings by well known and not so well known artists to see how they have approached this fascinating subject.

All materials can be provided, but bring your own if you prefer. Sensible shoes, outdoor clothing and bring your camera.
Price includes a Soup and Sandwich Lunch

To book, telephone the Birnam Institute on 01350 727674
