Instructor Karen Bishop

What better way to get into the spring spirit than a flower painting course! Over the five week course we will explore different techniques to achieve loose, colourful, bright, cheerful and exciting floral paintings. Working in watercolour we will use photos and seasonal flowers to practice painting flowers in still life and incorporating them into landscape paintings.

Whether you are a beginner to watercolour or looking to shake off the winter blahs this course will challenge and inspire you and get you ready for our too short spring.
