First botanical art workshop in 2014, 16-17 January

Happy New year and plenty of botanical art.

I have two workshops in January, in Bosham Nr. Chichester. The first is ‘Colour mixing in Botanical art with Coloured pencil’ and the second is the same theme only using watercolour.

The first workshop is for anyone interested in working with coloured pencil if they already do so, or they would like to learn. Therefore it will be a good one both for new beginners and experienced.

We have all had the same problem now and again haven’t we, that we just can’t mix the right colour ? Well this workshop will be focusing on how to get it right. Getting the right depth of colour with coloured pencil is a matter of mixing the colours optically on the paper. We don’t always have the right colour to hand and, if we did, it is likely to be flat and boring without depth to it. Come and learn how to do it.

Thursday and Friday 16-17 January between 10:00-16:00. Get in touch via my website I look forward to hearing from you soon.

This is a snippet from that on which I am working towards the RHS exhibition in April. It is in coloured pencil:

  1. Very beautiful drawing! I have no patience for pencils, but I’m doing sometimes pastels. Well, when the eyesight is not perfect, it’s hard to draw small details, and I don’t do it. I cannot paint with glasses, and without glasses I don’t see everything.
    The image you’ve posted will make a great workshop.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind comments Inese. Your work is lovely and it would spoil it were you to try similar detail with your style of painting. The crab apples in this coloured pencil painting are the subject of an online tutorial. Part of that can be accessed via my website So, you can always have a go.
