On this three-day course with botanical illustrator Reinhild Raistrick, you will focus on the brightly coloured leaves that adorn the Botanic Garden at this time of year, together with the mysterious world of fungi that grow beneath their branches. The combination of these will give you the opportunity to paint a scene of fungi growing in their natural habitat. Time will also be spent painting some of the stunning coloured leaves such as Liquid Amber, Acers and Vines by using a wet-in-wet watercolour technique. An important element of this course will be the use of colour and mixing of paints. Reinhild will use a combination of group demonstrations, but particularly individual tuition, to help you to improve your drawing and painting techniques.
The course is suitable for both beginners and more experienced painters.
Reinhild is a qualified teacher as well as an experienced Botanical Artist. She received her first of four gold medals from the RHS for her monograph on the genus Saintpaulia. Many of her illustrations are housed at Kew in their permanent collection. Reinhild regularly holds major exhibitions of her work in London and Bury St Edmunds.
