About this course – This course is for anyone who is interested in botanical art, especially for beginners – or for those with limited knowledge in drawing and painting plants. You will be guided primarily, in the foundation of drawing – but also, with some watercolour painting, including the application of observational skills and composition. From the beginning, the course aims to instil confidence in the less experienced, which will be further enhanced throughout the course.
