Paint a Topiary Garden in Watercolour

Led by Jo Hall

Topiary gardens are often a wonderful mix of organic and geometric forms, providing a wonderful opportunity to depict forms tonally and for mixing green hues.

In addition to watercolour we may add texture with a few coloured pencils, ink or oil pastel.

Materials: sketchbook for ideas, watercolours and paper, ink, handful of coloured pencils and/or oil pastels, own reference.

Sat 14 Nov
11.30am – 3.30pm
£30

Suitable for ages 18+ years.
