August flowers botanical watercolour course

The course will be from Sunday 1st – Tuesday 3rd August and we will be looking at the season’s best flowers to inspire us. I know many of you may feel a bit rusty if you haven’t painted for a while and I know I have a few complete beginners who want to start as well so the focus of the course will be to go through the stages, step by step, to produce a finished piece.
