Botanical Illustration using Gouache and Watercolour with Tania Mason

Let's get painting with watercolour and gouache on paper! The course is set up for beginners to some with experience. All are welcome for a fun introduction to the fundamental principles of exploring watercolour and gouache on paper and canvas.

The aim is to study nature, flora, fauna, still lifes and explore the different ways we can paint subject matter. This will lead us into looking at other illustrators from ancient times to now. Getting inspiration and learning/borrowing new techniques to place into your own work.
