Botanical Art for Beginners

Monday, June 23rd 2014

Local artist Karen Innes ran a watercolour workshop today to help raise funds for the reserve. Eight ladies attended the event where they learnt the basics of using watercolour paint in botanical art. During the morning they sketched from photographs of flowers taken on the reserve.

From the quietness of the classroom it was clear everyone was concentrating hard trying to put Karen's advice into practise. After lunch everyone started to add colour to their artworks, and by the end of the afternoon the beautiful artworks were nearly finished. The standard of the art produced was fantastic and everyone was rightly proud of their hard work!

We are discussing the possibility of another workshop, most likely focusing on fungi in the autumn, so keep an eye on our events page if you are interested in coming along.
