Description of workshop


The spring and early summer colours on the cool side of the spectrum—vivid magenta, red-violet, purple, blue, and blue-violet—provide the inspiration for this three-day botanical art workshop.  


You'll get to understand the unique characteristics of these colours using practical colour testing, accurate colour matching and blending, and technical colour application on single spring flower subjects.   


You'll discover the palette potentials of different coloured pencil brand choices and how to bring out the best in them for botanical art studies.
