The most glorious flower in late spring must be the tulip. They come in many shapes and colours and appear to be incredibly regimental when growing in the garden. Cut them and their stems bend beautifully, their heads hang. They are a botanical illustrator’s dream subject. This three-day course will give you the opportunity to study the simple shapes of a variety of tulips, to create a pure botanical illustration, with dissections, or a group of several stems in the style of the Old Masters. A suggested materials list will be provided a few weeks before the start of the course. Open to all levels with group and individual guidance.
