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

We are delighted that Simon is visiting Greystoke for two days in early July 2022, and students are welcome to book just one, or both days, to suit. Simon specialises in Watercolour and Gouache techniques for boanical and natural history illustration. Some previous watercolour experience is recommended. Simon will provide much live plant material, and the garden at Greystoke will have plenty to offer. Otherwise, please bring along anything you particularly wish to paint.

Although the day is titled Botanical, Simon is happy to teach Wildlife illustration aswell, as long as students bring their own reference material for the day. He will only be providing resources relating to Botanical Illustration.

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.
