On this two-day watercolour course, you will focus on the brightly coloured fruit and 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, or you might wish to do individual studies of the variously coloured and shaped mushrooms. We will have a selection of specimens that will have been carefully gathered for our use, or feel free to bring any fungi you have collected. Painting fungi and leaves requires different watercolour techniques, from wet-in-wet to dry brush work. Reinhild will use a combination of group demonstration, but particularly individual tuition, to help you to improve your drawing and painting techniques.
This course is suitable for beginners and those wanting to develop their watercolour technique. A suggested materials list will be provided a few weeks before the start of the course.
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.
