Learn to paint succulents guided by tutor Penny Price
Succulents are fleshy, water retaining plants that come in a variety of colours and growth patterns and many different species. We shall visit the glasshouses to see some of them, whilst also studying and drawing a selection of them in the classroom. Starting first with pencils we shall study their growth structure and then paint them in watercolours. Throughout the course Penny will be on hand to provide individual help and advice as needed, or further group demonstrations as required.
The course is suitable for all abilities.
