Introduction to Autumnal Botanical Drawing with Mary Dillon

Materials provided. Lunch Break is from 1-2pm (Lunch is not included).

Class size limited to 12 people.

‘Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness…’ John Keats

Our Hedgerows, woodlands, fields and gardens are bursting with the warm rich colours of Autumn. This one day course will provide tools in investigative drawing and painting. A multi-sensory approach will create a dynamic course, in which the participant will experiment with observation, mark-making and colour exploration.

This workshop will cover:

  • Observational and measured drawing
  • Exploring light and tone to create form
  • Colour mixing and matching
  • Wet and dry watercolour techniques

Materials will be provided.

If you need any further information, please call 056 7761106
