Botanical & Landscape Painting in Illustrative Style
Create a rich work full of the patterns and colors of nature and inspired by Sara’s delightful illustrative style and approach. Begin by grabbing sketch books and exploring the local landscapes, woodland and natural habitats surrounding Snow Farm. Along the way, make notes, color references and drawings. Take photos, create pencil sketches and embellish your pages with watercolor and gouache. Over the next couple of days, develop these observations into a work on canvas, adding layers, textures and fine details using gouache and acrylics. Sara will share advice and techniques for capturing the essence and character of nature in all its wonder. All levels welcome.
