The course will focus on painting Australian native plants with a study of grevilleas, guided by award-winning botanical artist Cheryl Hodges. We will closely observe the plant with both magnifier and microscope, and also some dissections. We will note our observations and describe the plant in a nature journal style. This information will then be used to render a detailed watercolour portrait of the plant, discussing composition, tone, colour, using washes, glazing and dry-brush work. There will also be an opportunity to try pen and ink and also watercolour on vellum.
