Session1: Wed 8 Feb, Session 2: Wed 15 Feb, Session 3: Wed 22 Feb
Take an everyday vegetable, and turn it into a lovely botanical illustration. Using a small palette of coloured pencils Janie will guide you through the stages to make your piece of artwork amazingly realistic. You will be sent an image in advance, so that you’re ready to colour as soon as the course begins. Full instructions on how to do this and a kit of everything you will need will be posted to you.
No previous experience is required. The price is for all three sessions which cannot be booked individually.
Please note that we are unable to post kits outside of the UK
