Loose and Lively Watercolours
with Tony White

This workshop is designed to take the edge off of the often-daunting, maddening world of Watercolour Painting. Simply focusing on tone,

composition and above all, FUN, we’ll be producing simple, strong and striking scenes. Picking subjects can be frustrating because we are often looking to replicate something that already exists rather than taking the seemingly mundane and bringing it to life with our own individual flair. I will teach you to see beyond the superficial and sharpen your artistic vision.

Let’s create some cracking art!

Combine art and science to examine and draw plants accurately. This one-day workshop will give you an overview of what’s involved in creating a piece of botanical art. You will develop an understanding of the structure of flowers and leaves and learn the basics of botanical drawing.
