Botanical Painting ~ Autumn leaves with Karen Green in watercolour

Saturday 19th October

10am – 4pm  Studio One

All abilities welcome

Working from a variety of colourful Autumn leaves 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 the leaf.

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, tackle vein structure and a little leaf botany!

About Karen

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.
