The drawing can then be further developed in continuous tone graphite to indicate light and tonal values. For those attending both workshops, the line drawing can be drawn up on watercolour paper to form the basis of the next day’s painting.

SUNDAY 13th MAY 2018 For those attending for the first time, Reinhild will give guidance on the line drawing. Group discussion and one to one tuition will advise on colour matching, and painting techniques with particular attention given to any special botanical features and textures ( e.g. hairs, leaf margins, stem ridges etc.) PLACES can be booked by contacting ICENI BOTANICAL ARTISTS website or Isobel Bartholomew direct e-mail : r.bartholomew01 phone: 01842 819969
