If you´ve been interested in how to paint with watercolor and how to create botanical illustrations, this course
is for you! Whether you are looking for a new hobby or you want to improve your skills, this workshop will
offer you new ways to explore this medium.
Over the full-day course, Petra will share tips and tricks about the basics of botanical sketching and
composition. You will learn how to mix your own colors, how to add layers and how to give depth and
volume to your illustrations. You will have plenty of time to practice and Petra will be working with you to
help you out with any questions.
From basic practices, we will move on to simple illustrations and then to more detailed projects. We will paint
greenery, such as Swiss Cheese Plant, eucalyptus, fruits as well as some Autumn-inspired floral compositions.
Watercolor is an intuitive medium and during this class we would like to encourage you to experiment with it.
Give a try to different techniques and color combinations, because you may achieve exciting and sometimes
surprising results. All the experiment is part of the journey of learning and by the end, you will see how much
fun watercolor is.
During the class, we provide you coffee & tea, as well as a small lunch.
We look forward to seeing you!
