Details

This watercolour workshop is about learning to make a botanical miniature with a gilded background, of a plant or flower, on watercolour paper. This can be stylised or kept very simple in design. The processes of drawing, tracing down, layering of paint, and creating form with paint will be addressed, as well as making a design that works within the limited space of a circle or other
shape. Gilding will be either with real gold leaf and/or gold gouache. Some flowering plants of a simple nature such as pansies will be provided. Open to all abilities.
