Join botanical artist Penny Price to cover the basics of watercolour technique by focusing on onions and garlic. The shine on an onion and the papery quality of a garlic bulb are challenging but rewarding. Cut open to reveal patterns or left whole, these shiny, reflective materials provide an opportunity to develop your watercolour technique. Starting first with pencils, we can study their shape and paint them in watercolour. Some specimens will be provided but you are free to bring some of your own choice too. Open to all levels with group and individual guidance. A suggested materials list will be provided a few weeks before the start of the course.
Penny initially trained as a teacher and then made a career as a Scribe and Illuminator. Then in 2013 she gained a Diploma in Botanical Art and Illustration. In 2014, she was awarded an RHS Silver Gilt medal for her botanical art. She has works in various collections including RHS Lindley Library, the Hunt Institute, and the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge.
