weekly botanical course

deal botanical coloured pencil group
This local course in botanical coloured pencil is now in its fourth year. We have a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and a step by step approach, making the course suitable for complete beginners as well as those with some experience. Recent topics have included cranberries, rowan, traveller's joy, autumn crocus and aromatic herbs.

We look at choosing and composing subjects, their botanical features, colour matching and blending, coloured pencil types and techniques and final presentation. It is an opportunity to take time out, leave everything behind and concentrate on creating something from inspiring natural material. Coloured pencil work is known to be very absorbing and therapeutic. It is not as technically challenging as watercolour, but the results can be stunning and some of our beginners have made great progress.
