Botanical Illustration 

9.30am – 4.30pm £75 Lunch included

Material Charges : see Materials list link here . A few £'s for paper if you use Simon's

A masterclass with Simon Williams SBA on Wildlife or Botanical Illustration using Watercolours and Gouache paints

This is a mixed group in both the Wildlife or Botanical subjects, you may join for 1, 2 or 3 days to learn about Watercolour and also Gouache painting and illustration techniques. You may interchange between Wildlife and Botanical and demonstrations are given in both. Any combination of days is possible but some watercolour experience is recommended - even if only a half day. Botanical: Simon provides much live plant materials but please bring along anything you particularly wish to paint.

You will all learn to look and observe details, mix colour and master application techniques. Whichever your chosen medium you will learn to use a dry brush technique to render detail and texture to your painting. Colour swatches are also important and you will make colour notes etc to keep as future reference.

The mixing of dark colour in particular in order to create convincing shadows often leaves students perplexed, so through demonstration and individual tuition Simon shows how an understanding of colour relationships can provide the key to confident colour mixing and the painting of convincing three dimensional images.
