Botanical Illustration Course with Reinhild Raistrick at Fullers Mill Garden
Illustrating Autumn Leaves
Monday 7 to Tuesday 8 October 2019, 10am – 4pm (£100)
This two-day course will give you the opportunity to explore the wonderful colours of the autumn foliage. Wander the pathways through the garden down to the lake before returning to the warmth of the Bothy where Reinhild will guide you through the compositional and watercolour techniques necessary to optimize the capture of those glowing hues into a pleasing portrait of bright autumn leaves. You will primarily be using a wet-in-wet method with the addition of some dry brush work, to accentuate the detail and individuality of the variegated leaves.
This course is suitable for artists of all levels.
An equipment and materials list to follow on booking.
Pre-booking is required. Call the Fullers Mill Garden office on 01284 728 888 or email Anne Valentine.
