About:
Botanical Illustration is the art of depicting plant forms accurately, to capture their individual characteristics and to aid identification. This 3 day workshop will be in a step-by-step format, with demonstration and individual tuition from Bridget covering drawing, composition and watercolour techniques. Topics will include observation, drawing, creating form and mixing watercolours. Inspiration for your illustration can be taken from walking around the beautiful Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park.

Bridget Gillespie has been a Botanical Illustrator for over 23 years after taking a degree in Graphic Design. A request to paint a friend’s wedding bouquet led to botanical specialism. Bridget has exhibited in Cambridge, Durham, Yorkshire and London. In 2002, 2008 and 2017 she was awarded Gold Medals by the RHS who have purchased several pieces for their archive collection. Bridget has works in the RHS, Hunt Institute collections and illustrated The Northern Pomona.

This is course is suitable for complete beginners to intermediate painters.
