Online botanical art course

“I find this online botanical art course especially helpful as it gives me the structure I need to continue my own development in this subject.  Gaynor has done an impressive job in developing this very good and high quality course. She challenges me to do my best, and more, before I return my assignments”.  Tone

“If you need to know all the aspects about botanical art in watercolour then this is a excellent course to do.” Sue

“Thank you Gaynor for your instruction and having this course available. I have loved the work load, the challenges, the failures along the way. Your instruction is wonderful. I think you should write a book!!! Thank you for all that you have done!”  Heather

“However, the whole course has given me plenty of practice with using coloured pencils and has made me much more observant when looking at plants and flowers. Thank you!” Helen

“When I started back to doing art work I jumped right into the painting part, pretty much ignoring trying to resharpen my drawing skills & I see how beneficial the graphite & pen & ink sections have been.  I’ve done quite a bit of practice (discarded many drawings before deciding what to turn in) & have really enjoyed myself.
I’m looking forward to the next module!” Sharon


“just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your demonstration last night and seeing all your lovely work, (I Think you made a lot of new fans!). I haven’t ventured into coloured pencil myself but you certainly made me think about it” Cherry

“Thank you so much for your brilliant talk and screen sharing your beautiful artwork” Eve
