Botanical Watercolour Painting Workshop

Wednesday, 16th May 2018 until Friday, 18th May 2018

Learn the secrets of successful botanical watercolour painting with RHS gold medallist Evelyn Binns on a 3-day painting workshop at one of Cornwall's most spectacular sub-tropical coastal gardens. Spend three whole days discovering or improving your botanical painting skills in the unbelieveably inspirational setting of Trebah Garden, on the Helford River, near Falmouth.
Limited to a maximum of six people, everyone - from absolute beginner to accomplished painter - receives in-depth one-to-one tuition in the tranquil ambience of Trebah's Georgian mansion. Its light and airy garden room with views down the ravine garden to the helford River beyond provides the idal studio setting.
Evelyn's gentle but effective teaching style is to work with each workshop member in turn, giving advice and practical demonstration on whatever aspect is needed: choice of subject and materials; observation; good composition; botanical accuracy; lifelike drawing; achieving three-dimensionality; confidence in using colour; improving layering techniques and more.
The workshop fee is £415 per person. This includes 3 full days' tuition, all materials, equipment, tea and coffee, and free entry to Trebah Garden.
