Draw the Botanic Garden from the comfort of your own home with professional painter John Wiltshire. During this two part online course we will take our time to pay attention to the Pinetum areas of the Botanic Garden so that you will be able to distinguish one tree from another and express the essence of these differences in drawings. Using various approaches with pencil and graphite, you will learn to improve both your mark making and your observation on this course. The price includes a kit of required material. The pack will be sent out in advance of the course and contains everything you will need to complete your drawing. This course is suitable for all levels.
