Wildlearning - Botanical & Wildlife Painting - 18 November

18 November 2017, 10:00 - 15:00 (Add to calendar)

Join professional botanical and natural history artist, Ruth Wharrier, on this enjoyable and supportive workshop looking at pen and ink drawings with watercolour wash in particular.

With the backdrop of Carlton Marshes offering inspiring views across marshes and reed beds, the class will focus on pen and ink drawings with watercolour wash. The emphasis will be on botanical observation, accuracy and seasonal plant material, and your finished work will be ideal for use as cards or gift tags for Christmas.

All abilities will be catered for and receive individual tuition.

Ruth is a very experienced tutor who has run many successful workshops for the Trust. She studied Botanical Illustration at The Chelsea Physic Garden, London and exhibits widely. Examples of her natural history illustrations can be seen on the tourist information boards on Pakefield Cliff, Suffolk. Ruth paints in watercolour on paper, vellum and wood and also creates etchings and works in pen and ink. Ruth is regularly commissioned by international clients to decorate harpsichords, with flora and fauna using historical painting techniques.
