13th March 2021 Botanical Painting Spring FLowers with Karen Green
Botanical Painting ~ Spring flowers with Karen Green in watercolour
Saturday 13th March 2021
10am – 4pm Studio One
All abilities welcome
Working from a selection of Spring flowers, you will learn how to compose, draw from observation and paint in detail, using watercolour, to create a finished botanical painting reflecting an understanding of the subject whilst capturing the beauty of these seasonal plants.
With Karen’s experience as a botanical artist you will be guided, with one to one support and demonstrations, to mix colours carefully to match what you see, explore light and shadows and learn a little flower botany! During the session you will familiarise yourself with the materials and tools needed for botanical art and the techniques used, slowly building up layers of paint to create luminosity and depth.
Karen has been working as a professional artist for nearly ten years and has taught botanical art workshops locally since 2016. Receiving a First Class honours degree at The Arts Institute of Bournemouth, she went on to work as a primary school teacher for several years before embarking on a full time career as a fine artist. She now exhibits her work regularly in shared and solo shows. She refers to herself as a botanical artist rather than an illustrator as, although she paints with intricate detail, retaining the technical accuracy of the plant, her paintings place more emphasis on the aesthetics and artistry.
All attendees receive 5% off in our shop adjacent to Studio One at Pegasus Art.
