In this course you will learn impressionistic painting techniques alongside the basics of observation and composition, colour theory, and lessons in perspective, all in the context of gardening. Using a wide brush or sponge and a palette knife, you will capture the essence of a subject with discernment and precision.

From still life arrangements to landscapes and gardenscapes, you will be ready to tackle any subject with ease, planning, developing and completing your work.

Beginners welcome: no prior experience is necessary. Basic dexterity, willingness to learn and a love of colour is all you need to start. 



Course materials are not supplied but can be purchased at a discounted rate.
