Details

This weekend course is for those who have had some previous experience in both watercolour painting and botanical illustration, covering more advanced techniques to help you achieve greater accuracy and vibrancy in your paintings. Every stage from drawing outlines to making finishing touches will be carefully demonstrated and explained to give you the confidence to paint to an even higher standard.

Lesley Smith has been teaching Botanical Illustration in adult education for over 25 years. She started as a complete beginner and after 6 years was asked to take the class over when the tutor retired. Freda Titford her tutor had been taught by Mary Grierson at Flatford Mill and Mary attended classes with John Nash the founder of the course now run by Jenny Jowett SBA, a course that Lesley still attends regularly. She is particularly good with complete beginners and runs several courses throughout the year at Flatford and elsewhere.
