Tanya Hoolihan: Introduction to watercolour for botanical art

A wonderful opportunity to learn watercolours from artist Tanya Hoolihan who is featured in our current exhibition Artistic Endevour

Participants will work from a live botanical specimen to create a graphite study, concentrating on form, shading and contrast. This study will then be used as the basis for a small watercolour painting using the techniques of controlled washes and dry brush application to build colour and form suitable for botanical subjects.
